internally, local scp runs "ssh <HOST> scp -t/-f <PATH>". With
command= in authorized keys file, the command set on ssh command line is
ignored and "command=..." is used instead.

it has nothing to do with scp. The local scp process doesn't know
about it at all, neither the scp process on remote side.
