Not really sure what you're asking, but this should help man ksh.

Well, you do not mention OS name or shell name & they might make a difference.
On a couple of RH Linux boxes I just "tested", it appears that $PWD is "maintained" by the "cd" command.
For me it always contains my present working directory (pwd).

Since your other post mentions SunOs 5.8, then you may want to refer to man ksh.
