There is the 3rd paragraph of the "one definition rule" section:
"Every program shall contain exactly one definition of every non-inline
function or object that is used in that program; no diagnostic required. The
definition can appear explicitly in the program, it can be found in the
standard or a user-defined library, or (when appropriate) it is implicitly
defined (see 12.1, 12.4 and 12.8). An inline function shall be defined in
every translation unit in which it is used."
Note they include "user-defined library".
