Yes. Mucor told him so.

I think he doesn't, not for a very long time. The conversation between Pig
and the shopkeeper underscores that. (Assuming it's a reliable
reconstruction, and that Pig and the shopkeeper understand the protagonist,
which of course they don't....) 

Do you have any evidence to indicate that, at the time he lectures to
Olivine, "the narrator" had decided/realized/admitted to himself that he
was in Silk's body?
