Allow me to think what I think as I have went through the book, and it
is my impression founded on very clear statements of Linus. That is my
review of the book as related to what he was thinking of operating
system. You may find it wrong and thanks for your insights. Though I
will keep thinking... 🤗

We do say things like "the free function doesn't necessarily
return memory to the OS, though under some circumstances it may."

In that nuance, malloc isn't part of the operating system, and
neither is the program which is calling it (even if it happens to
be the init daemon or something).
