Comment (by joemcgill):

 Hi @jrf! I don't know that I can remember all the details here, though I
 believe the reasons that these are inconsistent is that prior to [39831],
 WP relied entirely on `getimagesize` and include the `function_exists()`
 check. If I remember correctly, we introduced the `exif_imagetype()` check
 because it is more performant but wanted to keep the previous behavior as
 a fallback. The reason those checks are different are most likely because
 I personally prefer `is_callable()` but am also often overly conservative
 about changing previous behavior and opted not to update the check for
 `getimagesize`. So, the answer is probably that humans are strangely
 inconsistent at times 😀. Hope this helps!
