Where'd you here that? That's easy to test.

 $ bash <<<'command_not_found_handle () { echo "$FUNCNAME"; }; blah'

Doesn't seem to matter.

It may. A shell script may be run in any unknown environment which may
not have the available commands in PATH or elsewhere. Originally
command_not_found_handle was added for features like ubuntu's default
package suggestions when run interactively, but it has been used for
other purposes.
