UMASK 002 or 022?

Should umask be 002 or 022?

/etc/profile (base-files) has 022.
/etc/zprofile (zsh) has 002.

man-db obviously expects any user man directories to be group

Is there a policy on this?

(I tried to search the mailing list archives, but while I got search
results, the links to the actual mail message were broken).
