Domain mapping: Text displayed on wp-signup.php asserts site doesn't exist when it does actually exist

In a network install, when domain mapping is active for a custom domain, the following message appears on the wp-signup.php page when the network sub-domain is visited:

The site you were looking for, https://foo.example.com/, does not exist, but you can create it now!

Steps to reproduce

  1. Map a network site "foo.example.com" to a custom domain "foo.com" using this guide: https://wordpress.org/support/article/wordpress-multisite-domain-mapping/
  2. Visit the network sub-domain "foo.example.com" in a browser
  3. Observe the text on wp-signup.php which notes "foo.example.com" doesn't exist

The network sub-domain "foo.example.com" does exist so this text shouldn't be displayed.

The behaviour described in this ticket is expected because foo.example.com ceases to exist when domain mapping is made active. Please feel free to close.
