Unless NetBSD dismantled it (and I doubt that), the restrictions specified
in /etc/exports are pushed down into the kernel and are checked for every
RPC request. (There was a fairly recently fixed bug in the code that did
cause a problem in certain situations. I can't remember if it allowed a
security breach or not.)

I don't know if the Linux nfs does this, but 4.4 BSD definitely did.
