Yes, in that case it does, but that's not the default behavior, at
least not in my system, and I doubt anybody would define their
functions before loading library scripts.

What makes you think this is public? It's under the section '# helper
functions', which doesn't seem to be public. Plus, it's repeated in
rpm, rpmbuild, and rpmbuild-md5.

The fact that somebody uses it doesn't mean it's public.
