here's the docstring for list-callers:

List the callers of FUNCTION-NAME.
This function is like WHO-CALLS except that it is expected to use
lower-level means. Whereas WHO-CALLS is usually implemented with
special compiler support, LIST-CALLERS is usually implemented by
groveling for constants in function objects throughout the heap.

The return value is as for WHO-CALLS.

anybody remember why we make this distinction?

Ring the bells that still can ring.
Forget your perfect offering.
There is a crack in everything.
That's how the light gets in.
