No doubt! In a follow-up email I mentioned that I'd found the ssl_app
documentation, which contained the documentation that I thought didn't
exist. I remain sheepish.

That makes sense. Thanks for the explanation!

Actually, the ever-growing session cache table problem seems to be
caused by starting my application with the rebar3 shell. When I invoke
erl directly, the session cache table is regularly purged of old data.
I'll do some more digging and then maybe report a bug with the rebar3
people. Sorry for the noise!
