As a novice to Electron, i'm not able to tell if the Standard Notes Desktop application would be impacted by this issue, particularly with a passcode put in place. Would anyone know?

On at least macOS Catalina it looks like this might be resolved at the OS-level:

Gatekeeper will ensure that all new apps you install — from the App Store or the internet — have been checked for known security issues by Apple before you run them the first time and periodically thereafter. This extends the protection from the app’s source to include automated checks for what’s in the app.

Any Electron application would seem to be impacted. But it sounds like if an attacker can gain access to modify a program, they would also have access to install and run new programs.
