yes.  what part of your observations makes you think that the
environment isn't "captured" (i.e. copied from the process environ-
ment) when the os module is imported ?

(hint: when you start a new process, it gets a *copy* of the
current environment.  changes to the original won't affect this
copy.  all modern operating systems work the same way).
