It looks like there was an attempt to fix mixed compilation issue in
package.el See
and https://debbugs.gnu.org/cgi/bugreport.cgi?bug=10125

If I understand that thread correctly, package.el should not have issues
with mixed compilation. Not so sure about straight.el and certainly it
will not solve the problem when part of built-in Org is loaded before
the newer Org version is added to the load-path.
