This boils down to the question I asked earlier about header-args and
+header args, inheritance of header arguments and this in contrast to

Based on this discussion, I thought that the header arguments count
*where the code is executed* and not where it is defined - well -
surprise for me.

You could try and put the code block with the definition of the code
into a subtree where you set

,----
| :PROPERTIES:
| :headser-args+: eval no
| :END:
----

This might work?
