            Bug ID: 3400
           Summary: Let "~/.ssh/config" be a directory
           Product: Portable OpenSSH
           Version: 8.2p1
          Hardware: Other
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P5
         Component: ssh
          Assignee: unassigned-bugs at mindrot.org

Right now I can use include-files in my ~/.ssh/config which allow me to
break the file up into more cohesive groupings.
One thing about this, though, is that the actual config-file is just

include config.d/*

which seems a bit redundant.
Could you just check to see whether the ~/.ssh/config is a file or a
directory, and if it's a directory, just use all the files in-order
(which corresponds to what config.d/* does)?
