I now checked the code: it is done via jit-lock-after-change in

only works correctly if font-lock is switched on.

font-lock depends on syntax-propertize. Not the other way around.

Yes, but navigation command like M-x forward-list do not depend on
font-lock, but they do depend on syntax-propertize (consider parentheses
in generic strings).

Hm, actually, that has changed in ab21f61a552f038485d40218dfd94a16b843eb52. So yes, there's a difference between Emacs 24 and 25 here. Sorry for the confusion.

Ok, I'll name it syntax-ppss-open-positions (like (nth 0 ppss) is called
syntax-ppss-depth, and not syntax-ppss-list-depth).

Sounds good.

Well, that was the point of the above function: in the former case, the
function body is changed to (mapcar 'car (nth 9 ppss)), and will stay
the same in the latter.

Sorry, I lost you here. Former case?
