WP_DEBUG_DISPLAY is set to true by default but this setting will only have an effect when WP_DEBUG is also set to true.

It's already mentioned further in the same block:

WP_DEBUG_DISPLAY and WP_DEBUG_LOG perform no function unless WP_DEBUG is true.

#4 @jrf

I'd be happy with either. As long as it is clear that the default for WP_DEBUG_DISPLAY is true not false (as the code in master now wrongly states).

In 35882:

Docs: Correct wp_debug_mode() description to clarify that WP_DEBUG_DISPLAY is true by default.
