Why is the Emacs build process underhandedly changing my git
configuration? How doing that improves or benefits the Emacs project?

If those config settings are so good, why don't you spend your energies
on convincing the git maintainers about enabling them by default instead
of pretending that you know better than your users and the git
maintainers themselves?

The Emacs build process has no bussiness on sneaking config changes that
affects how tools work on my system, unless those config changes are
strictly required for the proper functioning of the development process,
and even then a prominent notice should be given while making the config
changes, preferably asking for confirmation.
