Yep, I've worked with the same kind of people.
We had a guy who didn't seem to know what a function was used for.
He had a bug in a for loop that was copy pasted into his code dozens of times. It failed in production when he was out of town and unavailable so we had to fix it. Had to search thru for dozens of instances of the bug and replace them. If it were wrapped in one function call...

Oy!
