--- Comment #1 from Damien Miller <djm at mindrot.org> ---
This behaviour is intentional as this option accepts arbitrary path
names as argument:

>  ForwardAgent
>     Specifies whether the connection to the authentication agent (if
>     any) will be forwarded to the remote machine.  The argument may
>     be yes, no (the default), an explicit path to an agent socket or
>     the name of an environment variable (beginning with ‘$’) in which
>     to find the path.

Though perhaps ssh should warn in cases that the specified agent socket
does not exist
