It does and that cannot be changed on Windows without a major overhaul of just
how the "dynamic linking" part of "dynamic linking libraries" work. In other
words, this is not just a (compile-time) linker problem, it's mostly a program
loader and file format problem.

Even macOS/Darwin adopted some of the characteristics that are problematic, so
I don't know how well it works on those OS and, if it does work, just how.
