"execute_cmd.h" is not listed in the INSTALLED_HEADERS macro which determines which headers are included for the install-headers target.

Yes, builtin commands are generally the target of execution, not things
that execute other builtins or shell functions. When builtins execute
other commands, it's either something like eval/command/source/exec or
the jobs -x/fc type of transform-and-execute.

Is it problematic for a loadable builtin to execute shell functions or is it maybe an oversight that that header is not included? If I build against the full source it appears to work fine but I wonder if there are edge cases that cause problems.

It's not necessarily an oversight, just not something that builtin commands
generally do. What's your use case?
