Those are part of CoreFoundation, the C library on which the Mac/iOS Foundation framework is built. The two have a complicated relationship; Foundation exposes most but not all of the CoreFoundation APIs as Objective-C, but there are still some features you have to drop down to C to use. This is one.

But I think you’re using the in-development Swift Foundation? That’s a different implementation entirely. Presumably it will have some API of its own to determine the type of a number.
