Yes, they are like macros, and this is what makes them useful for public use.

The semantics is that they do what the default actions do
plus something specific.  Maybe then move the default part
from their body to some other fallback layer?  Then just use e.g.
display-buffer-at-bottom, without the -maybe part.
Or maybe use an alist for that, something like

  ((maybe-try . default-actions))

I don't see any justification.

It seems this code has no effect, it's never used.  Could you suggest
such window configuration to test that would call it?

There is another problem: in two small vertically split windows
'display-buffer-at-bottom' sometimes displays the buffer in the
upper window.
