The reason why distro build systems like to distinguish "build" from
"check" (run tests) is that often the tests are time-consuming (or
have intrusive dependencies or other practical problems).

IMO if the ABI check is very fast there is no reason not to run it by
default.  (We have configure to deal with the dependency issue.)
