exec does write history (in my setup, anyway).

Yeah, it's a bit annoying that history is saved in order the shells were
closed, rather than in chronological order of the commands.  E.g., if
shell pid=42 ran a command at noon and shell pid=43 ran a command at
13:00, and I exit 43 before 42, I'd still like the commands to be
written in that order.

I don't have EXTENDED_HISTORY set, though…
