Sure, that is indeed not set.

Help text from https://cateee.net/lkddb/web-lkddb/DEBUG_INFO.html

If you say Y here the resulting kernel image will include debugging
info resulting in a larger kernel image. This adds debug symbols to
the kernel and modules (gcc -g), and is needed if you intend to use
kernel crashdump or binary object tools like crash, kgdb, LKCD, gdb,
etc on the kernel. Say Y here only if you plan to debug the kernel.

If unsure, say N.
