The *module* gets gc'ed, sure.  But you can't tell from "./python -v -c pass" when the *module dict* get gc'ed.

Using "./python -v", before the purging stage (# cleanup [3]) I only get

# purge/gc operator 54
# purge/gc io 53
# purge/gc keyword 52
# purge/gc types 51
# purge/gc sysconfig 50

That leaves lots of pure python module dicts to be purged later on.
