A major mode?? I think you misunderstood what it does.  It's simply a
slightly modified flyspell-mode, conceptually clearly a minor-mode, see
the doc string ("Turn on `flyspell-mode' for comments and strings").

What the "don't spell-check language keywords" functionality skips
depends on the major-mode.  That's all.
