Well, yeah, because it's a fork/exec on that platform.

I don't entirely see the point. The value of shared_preload_libraries is to avoid paying per-process overhead to load the libraries, and that benefit is already lost in a fork/exec world. Might as well just let the libraries be loaded when and if needed.
I think we've failed to document that shared_preload_libraries doesn't work on Windows, which is an oversight.
