Maybe let's put the question another way:

is there an example, where save-excursion will fail, ie not restore
the buffer due to a set-buffer afterwards?

No.  It will restore buffer, point and mark, in that order.  It is never
defeated.  What _may_ be defeated is an excursion happening within the
scope of `set-buffer' because restoring buffer will in some instances
restore to the same buffer before restoring point and mark.

Hmm, isn't it just the task of save-excursion to defeat an inner set-buffer?

A legal defeat so to say...

Or with other words: save-excursion must not restore if no danger buffer being set otherwise meanwhile.

So the warning is just nonsense?
