Description

No matter what you pass as the 3rd parameter to ST_Simplify, it's always assumed as true:

# WITH params2 AS
(
    Select ST_Simplify(the_geom_webmercator, 1000000000) as g from public.benchmark_4c7214d90a79aa6760367a084a4d4a2f61fbe1c6cc4f7f9e76020
),
params3False AS
(
    Select ST_Simplify(the_geom_webmercator, 1000000000, false) as g from public.benchmark_4c7214d90a79aa6760367a084a4d4a2f61fbe1c6cc4f7f9e76020
),
params3True AS
(
    Select ST_Simplify(the_geom_webmercator, 1000000000, true) as g from public.benchmark_4c7214d90a79aa6760367a084a4d4a2f61fbe1c6cc4f7f9e76020
)
Select '2p', count(*) from params2 where g IS NOT NULL
UNION ALL
Select '3p_false', count(*) from params3False where g IS NOT NULL
UNION ALL
Select '3p_true', count(*) from params3True where g IS NOT NULL;
 ?column? | count 
----------+-------
 2p       |     0
 3p_false |    13
 3p_true  |    13
(3 rows)

Passing false as the 3rd parameter is being considered as a request to preserve the collapsed geometries, which is either a bug or highly counterintuitive.
