Do In Skill Payment Entitlement survive skill de-activation?

Imagine the following scenario:

User A enables Skill A. Within the skill he purchases Product A.

User A then disable Skill A.

User A then re-enable Skill A.

From a developer stand-point, I have not idea that User A has already purchased the Product A as he is coming back to me with a different unique ID.

However, would Alexa remember that the product had already been entitled to the user? Or do I need to enable account linking and store the entitlement in a third party system?

Yes, the entitlement is associated with the User's account and the product ID and managed by Amazon, removing the responsibilty from the Skill.
