I suspect that if you want specified behaviour, the answer is nowhere.

However, almost all shells extend (one way or another) the places where
return/break/continue can be used beyond what is specified in the standard.
It just is done differently.

It is possible (and seems so, from messages in this thread) that bash allows
a return in the trap string (not in a function called in that string) if the
trap occurs while executing a function (then the return applies to that
