You are indeed correct. The stdlib uuid.py loads libuuid via
ctypes.util.find_library, which (with our patchset) finds the actual DLL
name via the import library. (This is also true on ELF platforms,
although the actual mechanism is somewhat different.)
I have added libuuid-devel to both python and python3 requires.

Only by luck; it's actually necessary for both arches.
