'recenter' doesn't redisplay the frame, it only redisplays the window
which you recenter.

That's a feature: you set recenter-redisplay to t, which causes a
complete redraw of the frame when you type C-l.  And
window-scroll-functions aren't called when the window is not scrolled.

Bottom line: I'm unsure what is a bug here, if any.
