"The --recognize flag is to update the database for new files, without
performing a rebase.  The file names provided should have been rebased
using the --oblivious flag just before."

Recognize does not mean record or update in English but see, identify, or

Your earlier suggestion of --record, the verb used in the comment quoted above
--update, or CV's suggestion --merge-files would make sense and be more
I use such brief comments or descriptions as a guide to pick the most obvious
names for functions, options, etc: if the comment or description then reads as
if redundant, the choice is good.
