It looks like the option to use would be:

-r number, --fill=number
Hard-wrap  lines at column number.  If this value is 0 or less, wrapping will occur at the width of the screen less number columns, allowing the wrap point to vary along with the width of the screen if  the screen is resized.  The default value is -8.  This option conflicts with -w (--nowrap) -- the last one given takes effect.

If I understand you correctly adding this as root would reenable the -w behavior?

To me it reads like it should, yes. Especially since no other option comes close and it's explicitly in conflict with --nowrap.

In principle, to be certain, one would have to ask a maintainer, or read the code, or best of all, test it, though.
