 mount(8) does not read and use /proc/self/mounts at all.


 Man mount:


     Attempt  to remount an already-mounted file system.  This is commonly used
     to change the mount flags for a file system, especially to make a readonly
     file system writeable. It does not change device or mount point.

     The  remount  functionality follows the standard way how the mount command
     works with options from fstab. It means the  mount  command  doesn’t  read
     fstab (or mtab) only when a device and dir are fully specified.

     mount -o remount,rw /dev/foo /dir

     After  this  call  all  old mount options are replaced and arbitrary stuff
     from fstab is ignored, except the loop= option which is internally  gener-
     ated and maintained by the mount command.

     mount -o remount,rw  /dir

     After  this call mount reads fstab (or mtab) and merges these options with
     options from command line ( -o ).
