[racket] Module Availability

Thats what I thought it was, but I cannot replicate with the following

#lang racket/base
(provide (all-defined-out))
(define secret 1)

#lang racket/base

(require (for-template "secret.rkt"))
(provide use-secret)

(define (use-secret) #'secret)

#lang racket/base
(require (for-syntax racket/base))

(define-syntax (go stx)
  (define use-secret (dynamic-require "secret-stx.rkt" 'use-secret))


The resulting program from compiling secret-user shouldn't have any
dependency on secret, yet it works.
