they get the closest scrutiny and the most testing.

Funny guy! Several of the core modules have no maintainers, have had no maintainers for years, and have apparently had no one read the documentation, update the code, or do any sort of testing at all for years. There's a lot of ugly code in the core and a lot more cruft.

For one example, see ExtUtils::MakeMaker. Yuck. It predates File::Spec. On the other hand, less is completely tested, well-documented, and easy to read.
