See udf.test in the main test suite:
--error 0
select myfunc_double();

And in the result file:

select myfunc_double();
ERROR HY000: myfunc_double must have at least one argument

That is, the error is converted to a warning.

See also Bug#31178.

How to repeat:
Run udf.test

What happens is:
net.last_error buffer is used to store the temporary message.
Then, when we call my_error, we look at net.last_error and conclude that
there is already an error in the error stack, and do not overwrite it.
However, thd->net.report_error is not set, so the error does not abort the select.
Later the error is available as a warning.

  A fix for Bug#32007 select udf_function() doesn't return an error if error
  during udf initialization. The bug is spotted while working on Bug 12713.
  If a user-defined function was used in a SELECT statement, and an
  error would occur during UDF initialization, this error would not terminate
  execution of the SELECT, but rather would be converted to a warning.
  The fix is to use a stack buffer to store the message from udf_init instead
  of private my_error() buffer.
