I assumed the actual problem you wanted to report was that in:

emacs -Q -f which-func-mode --eval '(setq global-mode-string "foo")' 

there are 4 "-" characters between which-func's '[...]' and the

Since mode-line-modes already ends in "--", moving the dashes to the
front of which-func will just shift the 4 "-" around rather than
reducing them to 2.

Although the "--" at the end of the global-mode-string entry are not
necessary (being followed by -%-), I think it makes sense to have all
the entries be the same, so that entries can be removed/added/reordered
