Yes it is:
C:\Users\Bart>help break
Sets or Clears Extended CTRL+C checking on DOS system

This is present for Compatibility with DOS systems. It has no effect
under Windows.

If Command Extensions are enabled, and running on the Windows
platform, then the BREAK command will enter a hard coded breakpoint
if being debugged by a debugger.

Makes no difference whatsoever.
It does run, because you can set ExitCode and query errorlevel after execution.
