The image containing the fixed address from x16 is usually loaded. If it's not, that's indeed a very confusing situation (& would more likely than not implicate an AppleClang bug). I don't believe the situation is made *more* confusing because lldb declines to print a ptrauth hint. I've added a test for this (it just sets x16 = 0xbad).
