It doesn't fail, but there are evidently users who want to have that
information without using the documentation features of Emacs, so any
solution based on C-h is not acceptable to them.
While there might be some users who think that way, my workflow is mainly to use `C-h f` to find the help of the function I'm interested in. This is where not properly namespaced libraries are hurting me.
`C-h d` or `apropos` is plan B, and then I have to filter what is relevant and not, and also because the result set of `C-h d` is so big scrolling inside my Emacs becomes sluggish, which is not pleasant. So usually a this point I go online and search, and fall on Xah-Lee's page, EmacsWiki, or stackoverflow.
