I agree you can write code that apparently does not use a library buts it’s challenging.

I wrote my own PLAN compiler back in the day and even then some instructions were “ interpreted” by the exec.

Also there is an interesting article ( the reference escapes me at the moment) that showed how to permanently and undetectably hack a ‘c’ compiler.

To see what code you actually have, one needs to decompile the exec to its machine code. Well good luck with that on any large project.
