See the following examples, ctypes.resize is a built-in function and it's hashable.   ctypes.memset is a C function (CFunctionType object) and it's “unhashable”.  However,  ctypes.resize and  ctypes.memset are both immutable. They should act the same in Python. It should not report unhashable type error when ctypes.memset  calls  __hash__(). 

>>> import ctypes
>>> ctypes.resize
<built-in function resize>
>>> ctypes.resize.__hash__()

>>> ctypes.memset
<CFunctionType object at 0x7fab55961400>
>>> ctypes.memset.__hash__()
Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
TypeError: unhashable type

Python version: 3.9.2
system: Ubuntu
Expected output: 
ctypes.memset is hashable.
