They are, for the most part, but in any cross-platform codebase there
are bound to be blocks of code that are or aren't built for each
platform.

Maybe the Linux FAT32 FS module should allow users/applications to
attempt to set permissions, and internally do nothing and return a
success code every time? That way no application would get tricked by
this. But that's a disucssion for LKML and I'm sure there are a
million things that would be a problem which I haven't considered.
