REQUIRE-MATCH = t means that "the user is not allowed to exit unless
the input is (or completes to) an element of COLLECTION or is null."

Note the "(or completes to)". Now, completion-styles is (basic
partial-completion emacs22), and description for partial-completion is

  Completion of multiple words, each one taken as a prefix.
  [...etc etc...]
  Additionally the user can use the char "*" as a glob pattern.

So it seems to be working as expected: describe-function* completes to
an element of COLLECTION according to the partial-completion style.

If you try remove partial-completion from completion-styles you'll get
the behavior you want.
