If you look at the result files in the optimizer trace suite of MySQL 
5.6 (mysql-test/suite/opt_trace/r/'), there is at least one example 
where propagate_cond_constants() changes the condition. From 

   "condition_processing": {
     "condition": "WHERE",
     "original_condition": "((`t6`.`d` = ifnull(NULL,NULL)) and 
(<cache>(5) = 1))",
     "steps": [
         "transformation": "equality_propagation",
         "resulting_condition": "((`t6`.`d` = ifnull(NULL,NULL)) and 
(<cache>(5) = 1))"
         "transformation": "constant_propagation",
         "resulting_condition": "((`t6`.`d` = NULL) and (<cache>(5) = 1))"
         "transformation": "trivial_condition_removal",
         "resulting_condition": null
     ] /* steps */
   } /* condition_processing */

Hope this helps,
