Oh, hm, you're right; I missed that when transcribing the C implementation to JS, and I was looking at the JS implementations as a shortcut to avoid having to get bogged down in verbose C++. I guess that lessens the concern; I'm not sure it eliminates it, still seems like a somewhat odd inconsistency.
