No it does not.
BeOS never had any /usr.
Haiku doesn't either.

It's just used because people "saw" env being put there more often than python or perl of whatever, but it doesn't mean they looked to all possible places.
It has just more chances of working but it's not a guarantee.

Being official doesn't mean it's correct or works.

Again, it won't on Haiku and likely others.
