Some of the calls you mention can be made to fail if you can
tell valgrind to simulate an out-of-memory (malloc fail)
during the call.

Some of the others fail only for invalid parameters or only
under extremely rare conditions.  Some cannot fail.

Also note that on your list of functions, the functions whose
names do not contain "EVP" are not EVP calls, but traditional
OpenSSL/SSLeay crypto calls that are probably discontinued in
OpenSSL 1.1.0.
