When building a command with go build that imports modules, does the
resulting executable contain information about which modules are
included as well as their versions?

If so, is there a tool available to extract that information from the
executable? Can the information be retrieved from within the program
(e.g. through the runtime package)?

If not, would a request for this be received favorably?

Thanks much! I looked through runtime, but did not think to look at
runtime/debug. I was completely unaware of the -m option to go version.
