You are actually using the tool incorrectly. The --debug=N value is actually not supposed to be visible in the --help output. It's actually there for debugging the tool itself, not changing the debug level of the SSSD.

The correct syntax for changing SSSD's debug level is:

sss_debuglevel 0xFFF0
sss_debuglevel 4

We're going to fix this upstream so that the --debug=N option is hidden from the --help, to avoid confusion.
