The builtin "help" only gives you a short summary of a single command's
options.  It is not an exhaustive reference.  For the complete story,
you must read the man page, or the web-based reference.

It would be completely ridiculous if "help history" were to print out
a synopsis of every history-related shell variable, and mention every
other command that could possibly interact with history in some way.
