    \verb is a typesetting command: a v-type argument is about 'grabbing' stuff, what you do with it is down to you

The manual doesn't say that a font selection is done when delivering the argument after it has grabbed “in a way similar to \verb” just because it doesn't happen in the first place. So

\NewDocumentCommand{\myVerbatim}{v}{\texttt{#1}}

will emulate \verb (but \verb does some more things).
