I work in an environment that produces huge tracts of code for military equipment. Much of the code is restricted by various security clearances and so forth. Having said that, there is a sizable number of people with access to the full code (including me) and were somebody to come down with an order to 'write a function that returns this under these circumstances', there would be much discussion and refusal to do so without understanding the framework under which that functionw as going to be used; how often it would be called, and how it is intended to fit into the whole system; etc ... In short, we don't have code-monkeys who turn english into code... If, on the off chance, someone were convinced to do such a thing, it would be found by everyone in fairly short order during code reviews.
So I would be surprised if that happened at VW.
