> Otherwise, why use the system libmpdec at all and not the version
shipped with Python?

the packages are faithful reproductions of upstream packages, deviating from those introduces surprises for downstreams

> If I install into a venv, I also don't use the system libmpdec.

$ python3.9 -m venv vvv
$ vvv/bin/python -c 'import _decimal, subprocess; subprocess.check_call(("ldd", _decimal.__file__))' (0x00007fff429ec000) => /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ (0x00007fcaeae03000) => /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ (0x00007fcaeade0000) => /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ (0x00007fcaeabee000) => /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ (0x00007fcaeaa9f000)
