Help for LSP config with pyls and some of the settings

I have this in my init.vim to try and setup pylint. I have a conda environment (and activated) with pylint installed. Next I have a simply python file with import numpy as np in it. Since numpy is not installed I would expect pylint to complain, but it’s not. So, as far as I can tell it’s not being used. :LspInfo tells me that pyls is running, but I don’t know how to debug beyond that. I took these settings from nvim-lspconfig/ at master · neovim/nvim-lspconfig · GitHub

Went through Learn X in Y minutes for Lua, this seems valid. Not sure what I am doing wrong. Maybe this is the wrong place to ask.

lua << EOF
local lsp=require('lspconfig')
        settings = {
            plugins = {
                pylint = {
                    enabled = true,
                    executable = 'pylint',
                    args={'--rcfile', '~/.pylintrc'}

And here’s my conda env.
