This is backwards, sorry.  M-. should be intelligent enough not to

Yes, this does not make sense to me either.

If this issue is controversial among users, let's have a user option
to control the default behavior -- either always prompt and use the
symbol at point, if any, for the default value, or prompt only when
there's no usable symbol at point.

The option has been added.
