Is this a documentation error then? (from https://cygwin.com/cygwin-ug-net/setup-env.html)

The LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable is used by the Cygwin function dlopen () as a list of directories to search for .dll files to load. This environment variable is converted from Windows format to UNIX format when a Cygwin process first starts. Most Cygwin applications do not make use of
    the dlopen () call and do not need this variable.

No.

LD_LIBRARY_PATH is used by dlopen ().

PATH is one of the locations searched by Windows when starting applications, see https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/7d83bc18.aspx
