Yes, but not one in the type system.

It's deliberate. I saw no reason to give it a distinct type. A
MemberPointerType to FunctionProtoType is a pointer to member function.
The only place where a member function can appear without a pointer to
it is in call expressions. You can't do anything with the function in
these cases except call it, so the type system gets along just fine.

The bug here is that the validation code for & takes a wrong path and
returns a normal PointerType to FunctionProtoType.
