No, all the time. I think this is a coincidence - make happens to scan
scripts/Makefile.ubsan first.

perf obtains the version using "git describe". However, if we are
building it from a tarball, it falls back to "make kernelversion" and
fails in a similar way:

linux-5.3-rc1$ make defconfig
linux-5.3-rc1$ make tools/perf
make[6]: Circular scripts/Makefile.ubsan.mod <- scripts/Makefile.ubsan.o dependency dropped.
make[6]: m2c: Command not found
make[6]: *** [<builtin>: scripts/Makefile.ubsan.o] Error 127
make[5]: *** [Makefile:1765: scripts/Makefile.ubsan.o] Error 2

The same trick helps:
