In PostgreSQL v13, "PG_GETARG_BYTEA_P(n)" is a macro that resolves to
"((bytea *) pg_detoast_datum((struct varlena *) DatumGetPointer(fcinfo->args[n].value)))".
This has not changed since 9.2, as far as I can tell.
The underscore in front of the function name is relevant: perhaps you compile your function
using a different "calling convention" than was used to build PostgreSQL?
