Seems like the new code of #22006 inspired coverity to generate this warning.

Please check my branch bug22746 for a fix.

Are these error paths tested already?

Does this need a changes file?

No these new error paths are not tested. I think we need to provide a pubkey value that is not on the curve to the blinding function to make them fail. I'll try to do this.

And now that you mention it, I guess this needs a changes file as well, since the "bug" is on the blinding functions and not on the unreleased #22006 code (but I guess the retval checking of the #22006 code inspired coverity to find this bug).

OK pushed two more commits on branch bug22746.
One commits adds unittests that trigger the error paths, the other commit adds a changes file.

The blinding functions will be used by prop224 client/service code which has not been merged yet, so the buggy code is not yet used in real life IIUC.

Placing this back in needs_review.
