Setting signoff=true is defeating the purpose of signing off commits IMHO.

The act of adding the S-o-B is usually expected to be a concious decision
by the developer, to assert that their contribution is in compliance with
the DCO (or equivalent contribution rules the project defines [1]).

If tools add the S-o-B automatically with no developer decision involved,
then it looses its meaning and adds no value over the Author: metadata
git already provides by default.

Daniel

[1] I'm actually not seeing anything in spice-protocol git that says
    what adding the S-o-B actually means for contributors. Usually
    there should be a copy of the DCO or something in CONTIRBUTING or
    README file to point to it online.
