Hmm, this looks like an inaccessible state for Org 9.4.4.  Here's how
org-link-open would handle an attachment type:

  (let ((f (org-link-get-parameter type :follow)))
    (when (functionp f)
      ;; Function defined in `:follow' parameter may use a single
      ;; argument, as it was mandatory before Org 9.4.  This is
      ;; deprecated, but support it for now.
      (condition-case nil
          (funcall (org-link-get-parameter type :follow) path arg)
         (funcall (org-link-get-parameter type :follow) path)))))

So it first calls with the expected 2 arguments and then falls back to
the single one.

Follow attachment links works okay on my end, and, aside from a mixed
installation, I can't think of a way to get into that state.

That function was added in 9.4 and is in the same file as the caller,
org-link-open.  The fact that it's not defined also points to a mixed
install, with an older ol.el taking precedence.
