No. The "session_data" manager contains only the path to the session
data. It has nothing to do where the sessions are maintained.

You are sure that you have verified via "app.__dict__['temp_folder']"
that "temp_folder" is a MountPoint (and have seen it as a normal "Folder")?
If you access "temp_folder" normally, it will always look like a normal
folder (if mounting was successful).

If you have verified correctly, then some magic must have changed your
mount point back again to a normal "Folder". I do not know such
magic -- therefore, I doubt that your verification was correct.
But, you may put your session storage at a different place
(say "session_storage") and reconfigure the "session_data_manager" to
point to this new place. This way, no magic should be able to
modify your mount point.
