I strongly suspect that swiper does not provide *exactly* that option.
E.g. does Swiper's option also cause C-r foo RET to place point at the *end*
of "foo" rather than its beginning?

As I said I have no doubt that it's sometimes useful, but that's not
the question.

Yes, that sounds a lot more useful.
