What a shame. It would be very useful. How do I submit an enhancement request?

The highlighting is done by the external Scintilla control, not by code in the editor. Therefore, it's not possible, unless you add the names of the functions to the list of FreeBasic keywords (in lower case).

I wonder in what way useful.

Without knowing why you would find it useful the following remark may be helpful; or not as the case may be. Image

Go to View>View Function List.

Double-click on a function, and you will be sent there.

I've been spoilt by editor specifically developed for another language. It's very handy to see the names of the functions stand out in the code. A crude way is to use all caps but not as effective. I will just have to get used to the lack of differentiation. Not a major drama - just a nice to have. The other editor even differentiates between variables and arrays.
