It doesn't. Have a look at

reflection.c:mono_reflection_create_dynamic_method ().

The function is calling reflection_methodbuilder_to_mono_method (),
which it turn uses malloc, because a dynamic method doesn't have an
image to allocate the memory from.

I tried to introduce a GC controlled MonoMemPool per DynamicMethod,
but the JIT crashed right after mempool's collection.
