No, it would add it via an ;;;###autoload cookie, so it's added when the
package is activated (which used to happen via a call to
`package-initialize` either inside the .emacs or, as a last resort,
afterwards, but since Emacs-27 it now happens before the .emacs is
loaded via a call to `package-activate-all`).

I'm pretty sure this can be made to work, but yes it's fiddly and it's
not the way I'd recommend in any case.
