Why go plugin addresses do not load with go binary

Here is an example of this in Go - but as he says, don't actually do this. https://github.com/bouk/monkey
is there an easy (python like way) to do mocks?

I discovered this lib a few days ago. https://github.com/bouk/monkey it allows you to monkey patch entire functions, replacing them by whatever you want. Perfect for mocking. It's simple to use. The program is hard patching the code using assembly to replace the function address at runtime. You should not use this lib out of your tests since it's absolutely not safe. It's only compatible with linux and windows. But it works great!

Either the author is confused or has decided that he doesn't want to maintain an hack. Anyway license is pretty clear.

WRT monkeypatch, again, this is a "global" thing and assuming you are talking about bouk's monkeypatch library the author makes the note that

Best practices around mocking interfaces from external packages
1 project | reddit.com/r/golang | 6 May 2021
Alternatively, you could use an http mock library like https://github.com/jarcoal/httpmock, and override the urls the RealClient calls with a mock response in your tests.
best way to mock/unit test http.Client?

To mock an API: https://github.com/jarcoal/httpmock to use when your code calls external APIs so you don't want your tests call the real API. No need to create an interface as you do.
