There is no change in behavior. The documentation reads:
"For example area_light x,y,4,4 specifies a 4 by 4 array of lights. If
you specify adaptive 3 it would mean that you should start with a 9 by
9 array. In this case no adaptive sampling is done. The 4 by 4 array
There is no mention of any increase in the array size, with or without
area_illumination. Plus, I examined the source code, and I cannot find
anyplace where the array size is changed after being parsed.

The experiment does not work without area_illumination. The scene file
uses an area light very close to the surface, and no shadows are involved.
