In the description of the bool condition operator it does not mention that the
empty string is treated as false, it lists a few values and states that all
other strings are considered errors, I interpreted that as meaning that the
empty string was an error, however exim sensibly treats it as false.

eg:
$ exim -be '${if bool{}{True}{False}}'
False
