svnadmin verify rev 0 always succeeds?

I was trying to purposely corrupt a test repository to test my nightly
repo verification scripts.

However, I noticed rev 0 in the repo does not seem to ever be verified. Is
this by design?
I would imagine it is identical for every repo created, but the svnadmin
verify command
indicates it is verifying revision 0.

Reproduction recipe:

$ svnadmin create test_repo
$ svnadmin verify test_repo
* Verified revision 0.
$ rm -f test_repo/dv/revs/0
$ svnadmin verify test_repo
* Verified revision 0.
$ echo garbage > test_repo/db/revs/0
$ svnadmin verify test_repo
* Verified revision 0.

Does the contents of revision 0 really not ever matter?
