It works in a \paper block also...

It's not unclear.  One of them is completely redundant!  Anything
within \layout is for the current piece, and anything within \paper is
for the complete document.  We simply don't need two keywords.
`ragged-last' is fully sufficient.

Maybe I'm wrong -- in that case please show me a counterexample.

Not really.  AFAIK, \layout has two functions, namely to set up local
layout parameters and to set up contexts (with \context).  While doing
the former you can use all (or almost all?) keywords from \paper.

Maybe it makes sense to separate this into two different commands...
