And. even dumber example, you write a tool that parses some text and just outputs it in another format, the whole tool is 100 lines, does this really need testing????

— Or analyzing or automated builds or any of that shit like that

— Of course it is good practice to do unit testing, it always is, but doing unit testing is also not good if you first develop the code and then the tests; you write tests that will pass. Some other people should write tests for your program. Or then write tests before developing

— Of course small projects should not be considered here

— I'm interested in those cases

— If you're just doing a proof-of-concept, of course you don't need testing, but it's not the case I'm talking about

— This is not necesarilly a "proof of concept"

— Writing an SMM code, for example? How would I test my code without running it on a real hardware (system testing)?

Should I code a intel PCH100/PCH200 emulator?

— I know there is EDK2 and Ovmf which can be run inside an emulator, but they still won't emulate REAL chipsets found on real motherboards

— It's a niche topic, of course software should be tested. I worked as an test engineer in a software company before
