If something is changing that can cause defects. It doesn't matter whether it is an ABI or an API.


If that were true then you would get bugs which only occurred if a library happened to load in some memory locations but not others. After all, the addresses of all the target address locations of all jumps and calls within a piece of code would be changing depending on where in absolute memory the code was loaded, which, according to you, "that can cause effects".
