No, by default (with TRAPS_ASYNC unset), traps are run *after* the
child process has exited:
While waiting for a program to exit, handle signals and run
traps immediately. Otherwise the trap is run after a child
process has exited. Note this does not affect the point at
which traps are run for any case other than when the shell is
waiting for a child process.
But if the shell immediately exits after the command has been
executed, this means that traps would not be run.

This still does not describe the observed behavior when TRAPS_ASYNC
