I cannot reproduce that on Linux -- just did a quick test from the

edd at max:~$ cd /tmp/
edd at max:/tmp$ r -lRcpp -e'Rcpp.package.skeleton("mypack",module=TRUE)'

Attaching package: ‘utils’

The following object(s) are masked from ‘package:Rcpp’:

and dito in an R session I had open:

R> library(mypack)
R> mypack::foo()
[1] 1

Also note that these package.skeleton tests are part of the normal unit

With Romain taking it a little easier these days, there is no committed
developer access to OS X so I am afraid you (or someone else) will have to
debug this.

One last thing: you could try my package RcppBDT and RcppCNPy which both use
Modules.  They are pretty small, see if you can get them built and loaded.
