Yes, this code is run. As far as I can see the following happens:

* append((1 72 "/usr/sbin/sendmail" nil 0 nil "-oi") nil nil ("-oem" "-odb") 
("-t") nil)

And then:

Debugger entered--returning value: nil
  call-process-region(1 72 "/usr/sbin/sendmail" "/tmp/emacsY9owP5" 0 nil "-oi" 
"-oem" "-odb" "-t")
* apply(call-process-region (1 72 "/usr/sbin/sendmail" nil 0 nil "-oi" "-oem" 
"-odb" "-t"))
* byte-code [snipped]
* sendmail-send-it()
  call-interactively(mail-send-and-exit nil nil)


> (or (null exit-value) (eq 0 exit-value)
>                   (error "Sending...failed with exit value %d" exit-value)))

is never run, because it belongs to the else branch of the enclosing if
