Only when you invoke 'recenter' with no arguments.

My point was that C-l without arguments doesn't necessarily scroll.

When the window is scrolled, the hook is being called.  That's what I
see here.

Because each one calls 'recenter' with a different argument, or no
argument at all.  I see nothing unexpected in what you describe, FWIW.

You need to keep in mind that "scrolling" is well defined only for
scroll commands and functions (scroll-up, scroll-down, etc.).  For
other commands and functions that move the viewport in the buffer, it
is up to the display engine whether to apply a scroll-like redraw (in
which case window-scroll-functions will be called) or not.  I think
setting scroll-conservatively to a large value will make the display
engine scroll in many more situations, but even then C-l might not
always call window-scroll-functions.

Also, you are talking about 2 different functions -- 'recenter' and
'recenter-top-bottom' -- and that adds confusion to the discussion, so
maybe I misunderstood something you wanted to say.
