Follow-up Comment #11, bug #62929 (project make):

This information is in the manual, in another section "Writing Rules"


> The order of rules is not significant, except for determining the default
goal: the target for make to consider, if you do not otherwise specify one.
The default goal is the target of the first rule in the first makefile. If the
first rule has multiple targets, only the first target is taken as the
default. There are two exceptions: a target starting with a period is not a
default unless it contains one or more slashes, ‘/’, as well; and, a
target that defines a pattern rule has no effect on the default goal.

However this parenthetical mention should be clarified as well.
