Unsubscribing worse than reporting as spam?

Here’s a little fun coronavirus spam:

In Gmail, if I click the “Report spam” button, I get this:

That “Report spam & unsubscribe” secondary button action feels dangerous. If I click that, I’m telling the spammer “I got it, thanks, I’m a human being over here with a a real email address that actively manages it” signaling, of course, please email more spam again soon. Weird that Google offers that.
