ABI is never broken in a release. Updates are always binary-compatible.

That is the theory. In reality ... this is not always the case.
I just had to do a bugfix in lighttpd because the openssl security
update, changed how the error code had to be checked.

That is a bug. Bugs happen. That was not meant to happen.

no it wasnt a bug, the change was needed to make the security fix work.
It just happened to be that not many programs check the return code of
that function.
