The behaviour of select.poll() is inconsistent across MacOS versions, on MacOS Mojave (10.14.6) registering and polling the receiving channel of mp.Pipe(duplex=False) returns the event POLLOUT (ready to write to). This is verified by a colleagues setup.

Whereas on MacOS 11 the same scenario will not have poll() return that the receiving channel is ready for writing to (POLLOUT). 

Example:
###
import select
import multiprocessing as mp
recv_end, send_end = mp.Pipe(duplex=False)
poll = select.poll()
poll.register(recv_end)
print(poll.poll(1000))
###

MacOS 10.14.6 Result: 
> [(3,4)]

MacOS 11.0.1 Result:
> []

I am assuming that the MacOS 11 behaviour is should be the expected behaviour, and that the recv connection from a Pipe should never return that it is writable.

This was tested with Python 3.9.4, and 3.7.6.
