I somehow thought Felipe wanted to say that there is nothing but
manual pages that mention the command and, "look how useful set-head
subcommand is, here is how you use it" blog posts are not seen
because nobody uses 'remote set-head'.

I do not quesiotn the frequency count of set-head, but I do not
think the lack of mention of set-head leads to the conclusion that
nobody uses "git log origin.."; there is a leap in logic.  As you
said below, "origin" is there without need for set-head, so the lack
of enthusiastic advocate for set-head does not mean anything wrt how
people find "origin" useful.
