Do these other ISPs in the US actually run fiber to the houses? Or
just to the central office?

I know that when they were running fiber in my neighborhood (Georgia, USA) they were running it to the pole in the front yard. I asked the guy and he said it was the new fiber coming in. Now I didn't climb the pole to check it out, but I do know that it was copper from the pole to my house.

What you're referring to is called "fibre to curb", where fibre is brought into your area and distributed via copper to individual homes.
