It appears to be the default for territories using zh [paths genericized]:

$ locale -m
...
BIG5
...
$ locale -av
...

locale: zh_HK           archive: /proc/cygdrive/c/WINDOWS/System32/KERNEL32.DLL
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 language | Chinese (Traditional)
territory | Hong Kong SAR
  codeset | BIG5

...

locale: zh_HK@cjknarrow archive: /proc/cygdrive/c/WINDOWS/System32/KERNEL32.DLL
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 language | Chinese (Traditional)
territory | Hong Kong SAR
  codeset | BIG5

...
etc.
