Yes, sorry, i examined an incomplete texmf tree.

It seems that the fmtutil-sys commands [--all|--missing|--refresh]
do all the same, regardless if these are run the first time without 
existing texmf-{config,var,local}, or if formatfiles were already 
All format files are generated, which i expected only for command --all

If this is intentional, the manpage/usage should mention this like
  (same as --all, exists for compatibility)
