Raymond Hettinger <rhettinger at users.sourceforge.net> added the comment:

Note, the :attr:`~Option.dest` variable is a list which includes default
values if any are defined.  Options on the command-line are appended to
this list.  Accordingly, the list may contain both the default value and
the value passed on the command-line.
