Since this is only relevant for Emacsen compiled with native-compilation
support, the natively compiled code would presumably come from the
pre-native-compiled files that are bundled/dumped with Emacs.

And then the rest of the code (the one that installs the advice, for
example) may or may not be native-compiled: that doesn't make
a difference to the need for a trampoline.
