First of all, it is not correct that they 'do nothing'.

Fixing a bug for which there is no test code is very hard.
There are 280.000 lines of code in the compiler.

With simple and straightforward code, the bug is not reproducible.
I have tried this.

So, yes, you must provide an example so the bug can be located
within a more reasonable amount of time.

There is nothing wrong with asking that, I think ?
