fwiw, i didn't say this ↑↑ but it looks like you're attributing it to me

I suspect you've got something funny going on in /etc/hosts or
/etc/hostname.  but the man page for hostname(1) says:

       -a, --alias
              Display  the  alias  name  of the host (if used). This option is
              deprecated and should not be used anymore.
       -f, --fqdn, --long
              Display  the FQDN (Fully Qualified Domain Name). A FQDN consists
              of a short host name and the DNS domain  name.  Unless  you  are
              using  bind  or NIS for host lookups you can change the FQDN and
              the DNS  domain  name  (which  is  part  of  the  FQDN)  in  the
              /etc/hosts  file. See the warnings in section THE FQDN above und
              use hostname --all-fqdns instead wherever possible.
       -A, --all-fqdns
              Displays all FQDNs of the machine. This  option  enumerates  all
              configured  network  addresses  on all configured network inter‐
              faces, and translates them to DNS domain names.  Addresses  that
              cannot be translated (i.e. because they do not have an appropri‐
              ate reverse IP entry) are skipped. Note that different addresses
              may  resolve  to the same name, therefore the output may contain
              duplicate entries. Do not make any assumptions about  the  order
              of the output.

i think we want -f, fwiw.
