Hmmm...works here...

GNU bash, version 4.2.45(1)-release (x86_64-suse-linux-gnu)
Maybe the recursion limit on your box is set quite "low" for some

But the above is not a function, so would FUNCNEST even apply?  Default
is not to limit though, so unless you set it...??

I see no mention of FUNCNEST being applied as a limit
for expression recursion.

That said, I'm still trying to wrap my head around
how that expands.   Looks like setting -x doesn't work.
Hmmm....Why not?
