Sticky bit on "db" directory

In Mason's "Pragmatic Version Control", in the "Networking with svn+ssh"
section, it says that when setting up a repository, the "db" directory
needs to have its sticky bit set.

I notice that "svnadmin create /path/to/repo" sets the sgid bit but not the
sticky bit. I can see why the sgid bit would be set, but I can't see why
the sticky bit needs to be set, and I was wondering if that might have been
a misprint in the book, or something that's peculiar to the BDB back end
(I'm using FSFS).

(Or, does the sgid bit also set the sticky bit by default?)
