I fail to understand the point of this question? If you mean whether the protrig RPers still spend their time shooting Edencom rats for arrpee reasons and thus lose standing and have trouble in hisec, then no. There’s no real benefit to doing so, in or out of character - on the world level it no longer changes anything if you do, so it does not make strategic sense, and the standings penalties mean it does not make sense on a personal level either.
Same holds for the RPers who were pro-edencom in Chapter 3, of course. There is very little reason to shoot trigs now, as doing so does not stop them from doing whatever they are doing for more than about the 30 minutes it takes for them to respawn.
For protrig RPers there are plenty alternative targets (the sleepers and the drones) that make both RP sense to shoot (they are the triglavian main enemies, not Edencom) and gives them the standings that makes them more free to act in the future.
(While there are RPers in EVE who enjoy shooting the NPC with the wrong paintjob just to say they did, most RP in EVE is a little more complex than that. RP does not mean ignoring strategic sense.)
