The "--norc" argument is not recognized as an option because is
appears after the "-c" script.  See the bash man page, near the top
under "OPTIONS":
       -c string If  the  -c option is present, then commands are
                 read from string.  If there are arguments  after
                 the  string, they are assigned to the positional
                 parameters, starting with $0.

$ bash -c 'echo ":$-:"; echo ":$0:"' -e

$ bash -e -c 'echo ":$-:"; echo ":$0:"'
