So, if and only if CORRECT is set, then non-present commands will be
remembered as not present.

% docker run -e TERM -it --rm zshusers/zsh:5.8
7190647e021a# print $options[hash_cmds] $options[correct]
on off
7190647e021a# setopt correct
7190647e021a# print $options[hash_cmds] $options[correct]
on on
7190647e021a# rsync
zsh: correct 'rsync' to 'sync' [nyae]? n
zsh: command not found: rsync
7190647e021a# apt-get update && apt-get install -y rsync
7190647e021a# rsync
zsh: correct 'rsync' to 'sync' [nyae]? 

At that point, if you type 'n', then zsh will go ahead and try to run
rsync, and it will succeed.

You will need to run `rehash` (or whatever) before zsh will remember,
for correction purposes, that the command does exist after all.
