So what?
Of course the axiom does not depend on the model.
But the models simply have to respect the axiom, in that all the collections *that happen to be sets* and where every element is in X will be in the power set of X.
More than that is achieved only by Magical Incantation,

Your memory fails you now.
You told us that no proof is required to show that the set of even numbers is a subset of N. You were certainly unable to provide such a proof.
"No proof is required": that was his catchphrase.
