Right, it doesn't, as 'die' preserves the last seen exit code, and any
exit codes from the atexit commands are ignored anyway.

That's right.

But this is not, because $test_cleanup is initialized to this special
value and it can never be empty, and indeed 'test_eval_' uses this
condition:

  if test -z "$immediate" || test $eval_ret = 0 ||
     test -n "$expecting_failure" && test "$test_cleanup" != ":"

and it never checks $test_cleanup's emptiness.

$test_atexit_cleanup is used the same way as $test_cleanup; it's
initialized to the same special value and can never be empty, so there
is no need to check for its emptiness either.
