#' @title Sanity check expressions of a parameter set.
#'
#' @description
#' Checks whether the default values of the numerical parameters are located
#' within the corresponding boundaries. In case of discrete parameters it
#' checks whether the values are a subset of the parameter's possible values.
#'
#' @template arg_parset
#' @template arg_dict
#' @return [`TRUE`] on success. An exception is raised otherwise.
