Oh it can, and it does. See the add-on's issue page. Some long standing stuff that can cause NVDA crashes under some pretty normal circumstances (reading certain dialog boxes, for example).

I don't personally consider it a stable add-on, no matter how it's labeled on the site.

Are there not more customisations in focus highlight add on than in the nvda implementation? I only tend to use this add on for when I have sighted people here, to help them grasp what I'm doing, so it probably won't matter to me personally, and to be honest I always did tend to feel focus highlight could cause nvda weird effects. I've not seen those in the normal nvda on its own.

Subject: [nvda-addons] Add-on Updater 20.07 is on its way #AddonRelease
Add-on Updater 20.07 is on its way - it will show up in about an hour or so
from now. Key changes include ability to detect and present a message about
legacy add-ons (add-ons with features included in NVDA; as of today, this
applies to Enhanced ARIA, Focus Highlight, and Screen Curtain), and
possibility to save add-on update settings by pressing Control+NVDA+C,
revert to saved settings (Control+NVDA+R), or reset to defaults
(Control+NVDA+R three times).
IMPORTANT: Add-on Updater 20.07 requires NVDA 2020.1 or later. Although the
add-on will work with 2019.3 with modifications, please update to NVDA
2020.1 or later for best experience.
