I think you are right. It would IMO be useful to research a few comparable systems. E.g. Apache modules don't link a shared library, but still refer to apr_ functions as undefined symbols - but then, there isn't an APR shared library in the first place (at least not on Debian - how about Redhat?)

PHP might be close to our case: Debian includes a (in /usr/lib/php5), yet neither /usr/bin/php5 nor the Apache link against it, and all the PHP modules (in /usr/lib/php5/20100525+lfs/) don't link with the shared library - on Debian. I wonder how it is on systems that actually use the PHP shared library.
