Unaffected means that whereas putting 1000 in
line-number-display-limit-width has solved the 'L??' by making it
display actual line numbers, the bookmark functionality behaves wrongly
as it will not jump to a bookmark, but somewhere else in the file.  As
it did before updating the line-number-display-limit-width value.

It behaves wrongly in the sense that since line numbers are now
displayed correctly, it could be right to assume that the bookmarks
will now work as intended (they did not when L?? was displayed) - but
they do not.

It also behaves wrongly in this use case as setting bookmarks in other,
much smaller files, still works as expected.

By assuming that the L?? display also prevented the bookmark
feature from functioning correctly.  Mind you, I do not know how the
bookmark feature works.
