Summary showdayofmonth setting wrongly said as ignored

The compilation of the example given in Month/Year Format in Latex displays a warning: "Package datetime2 Warning: Region `english-base' has ignored the following settings: showdayofmonth=false on input line 20." But, in fact, it is taken in account.

If the optional argument is missing to the command \DTMlangsetup the settings are passed to all loaded modules. In this example, there are two modules: the base english module and the en-US module. The base module has no option and so warns about trying to set an unknown option. The en-US module supports the showdayofmonth option and sets it. You can avoid the warning by using the optional argument to explicitly set which module to pass the option to:


or use the starred version:


which doesn't issue a warning for unknown options.
