Yes, it does. AFAIK, all base (and port?) software is [by default] stripped
on installation, and the environment I tested that command with had stripped
That isn't "stupid"; it took me a little while to work up that command
(I didn't even know about readelf(1) until someone mentioned it to me).
I'm no ELF expert - I'm no anything expert - but it appears that the ELF
format itself contains these "labels".
