Eh, why not? They can already be set for unallocated slots:

vfs: stop clearing close on exec when closing a fd

Codepaths allocating a fd always make sure the bit is set/unset
depending on flags, thus clearing on close is redundant.

And while we're on that subject, yours truly suggested exactly that two
years prior [1], with a follow-up [2] in 2018 to do what wasn't done in
5297908, but (still) seems like obvious micro-optimizations, given that
the close_on_exec bitmap is not maintained as a subset of the open
bitmap. Mind taking a look at [2]?
