I did not find any doc or test for the behavior of the interpreter in virtual mode, only for venv and pyvenv.

A new paragraph in site.py exists, but it’s missing from site.rst, contains what I think is an error (saying that sys.prefix is always the real prefix), and should be somewhere more obvious than the site docs or linked from somewhere more obvious, like the Usage and Setup docs or maybe the tutorial.

Note that the prefix values (and their meanings in venv/non-venv environments) are documented in the sys module.
