I don't agree. It's helpful to preserve the information that something was merged, which commits were part of the merge and most importantly a reference to the github issue in the merge request.
Another important point, with merging each commit in master adds a whole feature/fix whereas with rebasing you get all intermediate commits too.
I don't care so much about the tree graph, but the above points are important when searching regressions.
