It is "valid" Python 3 and the lack of an effect on the local is correct.

From Python 3 on, "exec" is a function and therefore lacks the special
magic properties it had in Python 2 that made it possible execute the
code "as if it just was written there".

In effect, what exec() modifies here is similar to what locals()
returns: a mere copy of the local namespace.
