Indeed, the byte-compiler compiles the code, rather than executes it.

But if it sees a (require 'foo) it will run that (require 'foo), i.e. it
will load foo.el(c), which executes all of the code in there.
So a (require 'tex) will execute (TeX-auto-add-type "symbol" "TeX") at
compile-time, and will hence cause TeX-symbol-list to exist at compile-time.

You could.  Or you could turn them into macros.

    (when (fboundp 'font-latex-add-keywords)
      (font-latex-add-keywords ...))

Good question.  We usually use `declare-function' for these, but
admittedly, it's not a great solution.
