Again, Linus seems to think differently; he follows the same rules as everybody else for anything but version number tweaks. I think this makes sense; there's lots of kernel repositories, only one controlled by Linus. Adding an implicit "no signoff means signed-off-by: Linus" rule for all of them strikes me as inconsistent and weird.
As for whether he signs off on a version number change, it doesn't matter that much. I was just describing the data for the curious.
