What this actually does is disable splitting of debug info into separate files
under /usr/lib/debug, so instead the debug info is kept in /boot/kernel.  The
name of the option (and its documentation in src.conf.5) is misleading.  To
omit debug info entirely you need to remove "makeoptions DEBUG=-g" from the
kernel configuration (or add some additional configuration to strip debug info
at installkernel time).
