Does this apply to jemalloc?

While ptmalloc/dlmalloc/tcmalloc use a single-linked list meta-data that is stored adjacent to the user buffers, in jemalloc there is no such meta-data. jemalloc's design stores the sensitive meta-data separately, thus removing the need to add a dedicated protection layer for it.
