The technical term is "special form",
a primitive function (i.e. written in C, but
callable from Lisp) that has its own rules for
evaluating its arguments.

    (special-form-p #'interactive)     ; t
    (special-form-p #'special-form-p)  ; nil

Use the source, Luke! `interactive' is in
callint.c .

That's normal. If it isn't like that, something
is wrong with you...
