It doesn't know. By default we run the suite in LOCALE=C and it checks
the whole string. Under a GETTEXT_POISON build, it checks nothing at

The poison stuff is really about helping people not accidentally mark a
plumbing string (that we expect to get parsed by a machine) as
translatable. So the idea is you'd build with GETTEXT_POISON and then
run the test suite to see if anything breaks. But that means we also
have to annotate the test suite with "yes, I know this will be gibberish
in a poison build, but that's OK because it's meant for humans". And
that's what test_i18ngrep is.

test_i18ngrep could be more clever about matching the gibberish, but
there's not much point. The LOCALE=C run already covered the correctness
of checking the message.
