Follow-up Comment #3, bug #57178 (project make):

That makes sense. My use case was not critical, it just appeared to be odd
behavior. Perhaps it should be added to the documentation?

My use case was that I needed a third party component built which utilized
make prior before my makefile's macros could be fully resolved and I was
trying to 1) avoid a full second pass restart and 2) respect the jobserver
flags passed in when calling make on the 3rd party component. An unrelated
dependency ended up requiring a full restart anyway so I ended up tucking the
3rd party component in that first pass as a standard submake, so this
currently isn't affecting me.

I can see an argument for adding this behavior, but it is clear now that it is
intended and would be a feature request, not a bug. I do think a blub in the
docs would be helpful for those who come after me though and I'd agree this
can be resolved.
