I think it does actually.
How could gcc track inclusions without preprocessing ?

#ifdef USE_LIB_A
# include "a.h"
# include "b.h"

It seems very dangerous to me to use "-MMD" with different
preprocessor definitions than at real compile time.
But I'm not an expert.
Anyway :

Have you checked that ?

My guess is that it is a compile time variable controlling
the number of template arguments for a particular class or function.
Pure compile time.
