I sure hope not, unless the program doing so is running as a different user. Otherwise, it somewhat defeats the purpose of not giving that user access to those files...

Short: No.

Long: Programs have the samer permission as the user who started them (ok you can start apps under another user but then they just have that set of permissions so no biggie). They can't read/write to any files their user can't read/write to. Basically you can think of new processes as new users to the system - there really isn't much (any?) difference between a program and a user. Anything a user can do a program can and the opposite. So if your user can't access a file your programs can't.
