Perhaps because the right thing happens if you enable CONFIG_EXPERT
using "make menuconfig"? It also looks like the right thing happens
if you edit the .config and then run "make oldconfig".

Personally, I never use miniconfig, so it's not anything *I* ever
noticed in all of my years of kernel development. Usually, the way
that I manage configs is "make menuconfig", or editing the .config
directly, or "make savedefconfig" / "make olddefconfig".
