Byte-compilation is not done within quoted forms (i.e. forms that start
with '), so byte-compilation normally is not done on the code passed to
eval-after-load since that code is usually quoted.

Yes, there has not been any change in this regard.  What has changed is
that byte-compile now complains when it can't do its job, whereas it
used to silently just return nil without doing anything.
