netapi32.dll is 32 bit.  And it's a 32 bit OS, not WOW64...

0x6b000000?  In your previous mail you wrote 0x6f000000.

I don't think there's a rule.  On my 64 bit W10 system:

  76E60000-76ED8000 /mnt/c/Windows/System32/wow64win.dll
  76EE0000-76EEA000 /mnt/c/Windows/System32/wow64cpu.dll
  76EF0000-76F42000 /mnt/c/Windows/System32/wow64.dll

Of course you can rebase the wow64 DLLs, it's just unclear if that
helps, given Windows uses different DLL addresses for their system DLLs
after each reboot.

ASLR is disabled by default on Cygwin executables.  Unless it can't
be disabled anymore for certain (system?) DLLs.
