Yep, and the C++98 standard actually outlaws them, in § :

Names that are defined as functions in C shall be defined as functions
in the C++ Standard Library.*

    [Footnote: This disallows the practice, allowed in C, of providing
a "masking macro" in addition to the function prototype. The only way
to achieve equivalent "inline" behavior in C++ is to provide a
definition as an extern inline function. --- end foonote]
