I think the origin intention of the :post header argument is slightly
different from your use-case. It is intended to be used for
post-processing the results:

If you want to execute some arbitrary code before/after your code block,
it is probably more canonical to use noweb references. Using your
example:

#+begin_src emacs-lisp
# Cleanup first using experiments/clean-dir(): "<<experiments/clean-dir()>>"
# Create dir structure using
# minimal-reproducible-example/create-dir-structure:
# "<<minimal-reproducible-example/create-dir-structure()>>"
# Finally, execute `tree' using experiments/execute-tree:
(message "<<experiments/execute-tree()>>")
#+end_src

It will not produce spurious variable definitions.

Best,
Ihor
