That's right, and that seems contradictory with:
"This utility [pg_restore], like most other PostgreSQL utilities, also uses the environment
variables supported by libpq (see Section 31.13)."
as pg_restore does 'ignore' (for want of a better word) PGDATABASE.
But I think I can conclude from your reply that that behaviour is indeed intentional.
