It's not on the page for typefile:


And that surely makes sense for TeX (input) files, but not \type'ed
files, which are usually not TeX files.


The message

  verbatims       > file 'bar' does not exist

is wrong, the file “bar” exists. Displaying

  verbatims       > file 'bar.txt' does not exist


would be correct. But as I said, assuming \type'ed files are .tex
files does not make sense, IMO.

No. It just doesn't produce an error here (or non-success exit code
for that matter).
