Doesn't one usually look at the help of the tool they are using?
How does one know what it does by default?

I don't think so. There is a common sense rule in play.
By default get_maintainer.pl shows the roles of the people, so, when
one puts the name at least they may read what the role of the
recipient in question. If I see too many people in the list (let's say
4+), I definitely will start looking for the explanation why.
