No, it won't.  You're confusing changed ABI from changed API.

Say you have foo, linked against libbar1, this works fine. foo, linked
against libbar2 (where the ABI was bumped because some part of the ABI
changed), doesn't work.  Being able to debug both of those to see where
their behaviour differs has value.
