It should not, but it sure is used. I can tell from the amount of
repeatedly saying "go away and use v5" when I'm asked why this and
that of kth-krb (v4) does not compile/work/whatever on recent OS

V4 is like the VW beetle, a great vehicle in its time and worth
keeping around some instances for historic reasons but not the
transport of choice in today's hostile environment due to serious
security concerns.
