The HP-UX 11i man page says:

ENV  If this parameter is set, parameter substitution
   is performed on the value to generate the path
   name of the script to be executed when the shell
   is invoked (see Invoking ksh below). This file is
   typically used for alias and function definitions.

I does not mention .kshrc. And practical tests prove that only the ENV is implemented, and it works in both interactive and non-interactive shells.
