The kind of OS has nothing to do with code reuse.

Maybe you should give us the source of this quote.

In some embedded processors, there are no OS, so you have to write your own I/O, interrupt handlers, timers, multi-threading, etc. But with an RTOS, if available for the CPU and chipset, you do not have to reinvent the wheel. Perhaps that is what is meant by "RTOS helps code re-use".
