It doesn't, neither does an explicit --section-start for the
values I've tried (0x10090, 0x40090, 0x400090 (section overlap),

Different targets have .reginfo and whatnot getting in the way.
The closest I can get still results in:

Executing on host: sh -c {./ld-new   -o tmpdir/mips16-call-global -L/home/hp/binutils/src/ld/testsuite/ld-mips-elf  --section-start=.text=0x4000090 tmpdir/mips16-call-global-1.o tmpdir/mips16-call-global-2.o tmpdir/mips16-call-global-3.o 2>&1}  /dev/null ld.tmp (timeout = 300)
Executing on host: sh -c {/home/hp/binutils/obj/mi/ld/../binutils/objdump -dr tmpdir/mips16-call-global >dump.out 2>ld.stderr}  /dev/null  (timeout = 300)
