I just opened #27169: "__debug__ is not optimized out at compile time for anything but `if:` and `while:` blocks" as a more general case of this bug.

This bug covers inconsistent behavior, but ultimately, it's caused by incomplete optimization: `__debug__` doesn't act as a compile time constant outside of `if:` and `while:` blocks, so the behavior is inconsistent for all other uses in the `compile` case where `optimize` doesn't match the main interpreter session, and inefficient for all other uses whether or not `compile` is involved.

If #27169 is resolved as I suggested (or in some other similar way), it would also resolve this bug.
