dislike the claim that abstractions make anything better

True (in absolute), but in general they help. Indeed, if you just need to print to the standard output, you don't need abstractions (and you don't start with those, ofc) but as soon as some requirement changes that and you will want to do file, on screen, on some API, then abstractions will be better (than, IDK, local ifs, switch even local functions).

But don't do it 'just in case'

In general (again), you do it because you care about things like clean code, maintainability and avoid cases like 'only God and me knows... now only God'. Laugh | :laugh:
I've never heard anyone saying that it coded that beautiful/maintainable code 'just in case'... while I've heard a lot of times that the developers were not aware of some clean code principle or did not know how to really implement it.
