(info "(coreutils) Sorting the output") says

=E2=80=98-r=E2=80=99
=E2=80=98--reverse=E2=80=99
     Reverse whatever the sorting method is=E2=80=94e.g., list files in r=
everse
     alphabetical order, youngest first, smallest first, or whatever.

OK but mention 'whatever' doesn't mean -U, -f, because they are sorted
in "unsorted" order. In fact perhaps trigger an error.

Actually directory order is still an order, so in fact it is odd that -r
is "broken" here.
