Google's FAQ clearly states:

This feature is only available if you use Gmail for work or school set up by an administrator. If you use a gmail.com account, read receipts won’t work.

Alas, using Gmail for work, I get no such option.

How is it possible? Is Google's FAQ untrue? Did they remove the feature? Alternatively, is it only for certain G Suite editions, which their FAQ fails to mention?

No Read Receipt in Gmail

Turns out what Google's FAQ fails to mention is that an admin can simply disable this feature.
