No, but it still means your hook code is wrong: you should check that
font-lock-mode is non-nil before calling your `show-tabs'.

Not really, but it's always been that way.  Take a look at what
font-lock-compile-keywords does.  It has partly changed over time, but some
form of it has existed for "ever".
Also the docstring suggests using font-lock-add-keywords:

   contained expressions.  You can also alter it by calling
   `font-lock-add-keywords' or `font-lock-remove-keywords' with MODE = nil.

Only to you.  Not to Emacs.
