When "--help --verbose" prints out configuration file paths, the --defaults-file option is not considered

      Description

      mysqld and other utilities support the --help --verbose parameters. When these parameters are set, the utility will print out the configuration files that it reads:

      $ mysqld --help --verbose
      ...
      Default options are read from the following files in the given order:
      /etc/my.cnf ~/.my.cnf
      ...

      The default paths for configuration files can be overridden by using the --defaults-file option.

      However, the --help --verbose parameters do not seem to take this option into account when printing configuration file paths:

      $ mysqld --defaults-file=/tmp/my.cnf --help --verbose
      ...
      Default options are read from the following files in the given order:
      /etc/my.cnf ~/.my.cnf
      ...
