[Bug-tar] Append and Bzip2 Incompatibility

It does not appear that -r works in conjunction with -j:

$ echo example > example.txt
$ tar -cjf example.tar.bz2 example.txt
$ tar -tjf example.tar.bz2
$ echo example2 > example2.txt
$ tar -rjf example.tar.bz2 example2.txt
zsh: abort      tar -rjf example.tar.bz2 example2.txt

But no error message is given to say that -r and -j are incompatible,
and there is no mention of any such incompatibility in the man or info

Are they really incompatible? Or is the functionality of using them
together just broken? Note that -A and -j don't appear to work
together either.
