We do on some platforms where configure decides the system version
is deficient ... I don't recall the exact conditions at the moment.
I wouldn't really have expected that to happen on any *BSD, but you
could look into the generated Makefile.global to find out.

For reference, the relevant part of the Single Unix Spec:
If the value of n is zero on a call to snprintf(), an
unspecified value less than 1 is returned.
So the behavior you'd like to depend on is unportable anyway, and
that coding will get rejected if submitted as a Postgres patch.
