The same symptom with rquery with FreeBSD 11.1-RELEASE-p12 (tested: GhostBSD in a VirtualBox guest).
Comment 2 Graham Perrin 2019-01-09 06:19:24 UTC
A recent use case, from <https://forums.freebsd.org/threads/beginners-guide-how-to-set-up-a-freebsd-desktop-from-scratch.61659/page-2#post-412992> under 'Beginners Guide - How To Set Up A FreeBSD Desktop From Scratch':

Comment 3 Baptiste Daroussin freebsd_committer 2019-04-19 14:19:33 UTC
yes the messages are not included withing repository metadata, that said in this case rquery should not allow %M
Comment 4 Graham Perrin 2019-08-14 20:56:04 UTC
> the messages are not included withing repository metadata

Please, what is the logic for omitting the required information?
