    It results in the shooting player scoring the 101st point and winning the game.

    Fouls for sinking object balls only occur when shooting to score points 91 through 100.

    1. When a player is shooting for points 91 through 100, of which must all be scored on caroms solely, it is a foul to pocket an object ball.

    Further confirmed in the "Illegally Pocketed Balls" phrase from the rules (emphasis ours):

    All illegally pocketed balls are spotted per the provisions of the "Rules of Play" regulation #3 (see above), without penalty, except in the special cases covered by the "Rules of Play" regulation, numbers 4 and 5.

    In this case, "regulation numbers 4 and 5" refer to scoring the 90th point, and points 91 through 100, respectively.
