Should nano create $XDG_DATA_HOME or is this error intended?

Unable to create directory /home/test/.local/share/nano/: No such file or
directory It is required for saving/loading search history or cursor
positions. Press Enter to continue

XDG_DATA_HOME should specify a valid and existing directory.
If it does not exist, nano will not create it.

But I thought nano checked whether XDG_DATA_HOME existed and
was writable..., and if not, to fall back to the default.
It is silly to try and make a subdirectory in a non-existent
