tell me that they have never seen this before even though they have
the tree in their compounds...

It is not rare, we used to get it regularly.

This is a very common plant in South India and practically every
house has one plant. People do not allow it to flower and fruit as
they remove the leaves regularly, often the young branches are pruned.
One can see bunches of fruits : green turning to read and then
black, if allowed to flower and fruit.

My potted curry leaf plant on the balcony (in Mumbai) flowers and fruits regularly. the flowers are slightly aromatic.
 
As Pankaj ji noted, either people do not allow it to flower or simply do not notice it happening.
