All _internal_ vir*Free functions should be NOPs.  All public vir*Free
APIs (including virNetworkFree) are documented to explicitly fail on
NULL arguments (more precisely, on any argument not created by an
earlier API call), and we cannot change that behavior as it would be an
API change that violates back-compat.
