This is quite hard to verify for sure, since that parameter emerges from
the comparguments builtin in Src/Zle/computil.c after some quite major
engineering works, but it certainly looks plausible indepdendently of
your testing --- my reading is that everything that happens in the code
is associated with arguments that map onto something specified by the
_arguments call, which don't include the command name that triggered
completion.  I've submitted a change.
