Comment(by TobiasBg):

 r-a-y: Technically speaking you are correct in your first paragraph, that
 the function is executed when one of the two situations occurs.

 However, please take a look at what the function then actually does: It
 adds some CSS for the CSS selector #wp-admin-bar.

 However, the matching HTML element is only included if both of your
 mentioned situations do *not* occur.
 adminbar.php#L14 here])

 So, two problems:

 - The function adds CSS that will never match a selector, because of
 exactly opposing condition checks (for the constant or for the setting
 from the admin page).
 (S, it does *not* really serve purpose, and that actually is the main
 issue I'm addressing here.)

 - The function adds the CSS in the body (which is invalid HTML and which
 you address in your ticket #2153).

 Moving it to wp_head as you suggest would fix the second issue, however we
 would still be in a situation where we add CSS to the page that is totally
 useless, because it will *by design* never affect anything.

 Do you now understand why the function should be removed?
