If I declare a variable readonly at global scope, I wouldn't expect it

I think that's fine; in the local context, your variable has a
different meaning; it's another variable with the same name.

If the variable is exported the local variable overrides the exported
value.

If the local variable is exported to be 'global', then
how is that a local variable?
