 Actually, they don't, quoting has long been removed by the time command
 execution (an path searching etc) are done.
 eg: (using an old NetBSD sh, not the current one)
 $ f
 f: not found
 $ f() { echo hello; }
 $ f
 $ \f
 $ 'f'
 The same applies to built ins...
 $ echo -e hhh\\tiii
 hhh     iii
 $ /bin/echo -e hhh\\tiii
 -e hhh\tiii
 $ 'echo' -e hhh\\tiii
 hhh     iii
