The answers for both questions here are yes.

This dissolve_free_huge_page() should see a (free or reused) 4kB page when
overcommitting, and should see a (free or reused) huge page for non
overcommitting case.

Exactly.

in new semantics, dissolve_free_huge_page() returns:

0: successfully dissolved free hugepages or the page is already dissolved
EBUSY: failed to dissolved free hugepages or the hugepage is in-use.

so for any types of non hugepages, the return value is 0.
