Yes, "can be defined", but will not be workable if either side of
joined tuple is NULL because of outer join. SQL functions returns
NULL prior to evaluation, then ExecQual() treats this result as FALSE.
However, a joined tuple that has NULL fields may be a valid tuple.

We don't need to care about unmatched tuple if INNER JOIN.

Yes, it does not need to run fdw_recheck_quals by itself (if they
can guarantee correct results for any corner cases).
Of course, if FDW driver keep expression for scan-qualifiers and
join-clauses on another place (like fdw_exprs), it is FDW driver's
responsibility to execute it, regardless of fdw_recheck_quals.
