> On macOS, readline is provided by libedit.

It *may* be provided by libedit. GNU readline is also commonly used on macOS, although it is not provided by Apple.  The easiest way to tell which is in use is to examine the __doc__ attribute of the readline module:

$ /usr/local/bin/python3.6 -c 'import readline;print(readline.__doc__)'
Importing this module enables command line editing using libedit readline.
$ /macports/bin/python3.6 -c 'import readline;print(readline.__doc__)'
Importing this module enables command line editing using GNU readline.
