But it doesn’t.

Non-unified builds don’t make it possible to have arbitrary sets of features enabled at build time. We break that all the time and it’s only fixed when someone tests that arbitrary set of features. Headers are only a small part of that issue.

I’d go as far as saying it’s not a project goal to always build with arbitrary sets of features enabled.
