No, never.  What it substituted in the *Help* frame was a buffer that was
previously selected elsewhere (it was never displayed in the *Help* frame).

Yes, I imagine so.  But I thought you might like to know about it.  Without
loading your code I do not have that problem: buffer *Help* is never replaced in
its frame by any other buffer.  It is a special-display buffer.

Before loading your code there is no such parameter present.
Likewise after loading it: no such parameter.

This is the code that defines the *Help* frame parameters:

  (list "*Help*" '1on1-display-*Help*-frame
        (list (cons 'background-color 1on1-help-frame-background)
              (cons 'mouse-color 1on1-help-frame-mouse+cursor-color)
              (cons 'cursor-color 1on1-help-frame-mouse+cursor-color)
              '(height . 40))))

No idea what that means.  It clearly does not behave like a special-display
frame: its frame is not dedicated.

FWIW, (special-display-p "*Help*") returns this:

 ((background-color . "Thistle")
  (mouse-color . "Blue Violet")
  (cursor-color . "Blue Violet")
  (height . 40)))
