inconsistent behavior of sort -z

Comparing coreutins with busybox I found following inconsistency in the
GNU coreutils:

GNU sort -z documents:
use NUL instead of EOL on input

GNU sort -z does:
use NUL instead of EOL on input and output

Note that implementing it as documented would break GNU findutils
updatedb, as happens with busybox.
