You are correct, sorry for the confusion.  It's good to learn that
--maximized works without issue.

So I guess this discussion is about:

    (add-hook 'emacs-startup-hook 'toggle-frame-maximized)

Then I guess I have the same question, but for that customization.  Why
do we suggest a customization which has a "slighty distracting visual
effect"?  Can we come up with a way to provide a one-line customization
that does not have this issue?

PS.  On a side note, --maximized doesn't seem to work on this macOS
     machine.  I'll open a separate bug report for that.
