So fwiw I just tested it manually as well.  Scenario:

uid 1000 user ubuntu
uid 1001 user u2
sudo ./mount-idmapped --map-mount b:1000:1001:1 /home/ubuntu/ /mnt
su - u2
  cp /usr/bin/id /mnt/
  unshare -Urm
    setcap cap_setuid=pe /mnt/id
At this point, from init_user_ns,
ubuntu at fscaps:~/mount-idmapped$ /home/u2/rcap /mnt/id
v3, rootid is 1001
ubuntu at fscaps:~/mount-idmapped$ /home/u2/rcap //home/ubuntu/id
v3, rootid is 1000
