You are right, it follows the Kconfig logic, returning false for
defined-but-to-0 too.

We should probably add an `IS_DEFINED()` macro kernel-wide for this
(and add it to the `coding-guidelines.rst` since `IS_ENABLED()` is
mentioned there, with a warning not to mix it with `__is_defined()`
which looks it was only intended as an implementation detail for

CC'ing Masahiro by the way.
