it's not the SurfaceGraphics which appears -- that would be queer -- yet
the Graphics, which is ok, see:

In[10]:= Options[#[g], DisplayFunction] & /@ 
  {SurfaceGraphics, Graphics, ContourGraphics, DensityGraphics}

>From In[10]:=
Options::"optnf": DisplayFunction is not a known option for - Graphics -

{{DisplayFunction -> Identity}, {}, {DisplayFunction -> Identity},
{DisplayFunction -> Identity}}

As DisplayFunction is no option for Graphics it cannot be retained; in
fact no option of g is retained. If you look at

In[13]:= Options[g]

you'll indeed note that none of those would make sense after the
conversion of g to a 2D object.
