It'll only give you a suggestion once you've typed the entire phrase --
it doesn't know whether you're going to write something else, after all.

And it seems to work find for be -- after I've typed "find outer otter"
(and a bit more), I get a message saying "You can write ‘find outer
otter’ using the abbrev ‘bar’."  (But you have to let Emacs idle before
getting the message.)

So I'm unable to reproduce this problem in Emacs 28.
