I compared the behavior of IE and urllib.
I put different addresses to the <proxy bypass list> ("Do not use proxy server for address beginning with" setting), made different requests through IE and urllib and watched if the proxy was bypassed.

IE doesn't even make a forward dns lookup for the hosname given to check whether it should bypass proxy, whereas urllib does.

For example:
proxy_bypass_list       request                          IE bypasses proxy   urllib bypasses proxy
