The said variable was added in commit 666e158e382, and the documentation
bits of the patch read:

,----
| +center of the window, or as close to the center as possible.  If the
| +variable @var{recenter-redisplay} is non-nil, it also clears the
| +screen and redisplays all windows; this is useful in case the screen

| +default), then redisplay only happens on tty frames.
