But the warnings say to use cl-flet/labels instead, so it should works
as expected, what is the difference?

It seems that a simple form of flet works without recompiling, but a
more complex form with a let* inside the flet clause seems to fail
silently. (not only maybe, but conjunction of other things)

You can try with helm:
install it and byte compile it.
Do M-x helm-M-x and type some commands.
You should have completion on your command.

Now switch to another emacs and run the same command:
It is not working, no completion.
So it is not the flet itself that doesn't work but the function that is
called inside this flet clause.
recompile with this emacs and restart emacs.
It is working.

You can find the code of helm-M-x in helm-command.el.

NOTE: it use local var byte-compile-dynamic.
