Import sys, codecs not required?

Recently, I have noticed codes using codecs have not been importing sys, codecs and other bits and pieces of script, yet are still functional. What has changed? Is this part of Python 3.8 or something else. Example attached https://code.sololearn.com/c7X2WAze8PwZ/?ref=app

Because of Linux support may be! SL mobile switched it server to Linux recently, previously it was running on Windows, although SL website is still running on Windows server and Python 3.7 https://code.sololearn.com/cNYrJgKiu93y/?ref=app https://code.sololearn.com/c5XcL497pu4C/?ref=app

Rik, you are right, something might have changed. I tried a code file that created an error few weeks ago. It does run properly now without using codecs.
