At least from gcc you get .data.rel.local sections if you have, for eg:
struct { void *p; } foo = { .p = &bar };
where bar is defined in the same file. These aren't relocation sections,
foo is actually placed in the .data.rel.local section instead of .data.

But yeah, it's incomplete, you wouldn't catch it if bar was external
(foo goes in .data.rel) or foo was const (foo goes in*).
