I have two more pieces of info: the shell is started by using
/usr/bin/sh if the script is simply invoked directly from bash by
typing its full pathname.
If I start it either via bash or sh, it runs using whatever bash or sh
is found from PATH.
So my guess is that when a script with no #!/path line is run, then the
default is to run /usr/bin/sh to start it, and the PATH simply doesn't
come into it.
