If you set your nsswitch.conf to, say;
passwd: db
db_enum: cache builtin local files
The accounts listed in /etc/passwd aren't looked up.
I understand that it's a documented behavior, but it looks... odd to me.

 From the UG they should be looked up and may appear more than once if you
specify say "files" in an entry and also a db_... entry.
Did you test with "getent passwd"? I get SYSTEM and NT SERVICE repeated.
I get a comprehensive account list with mkpasswd.
I have W10 rs4_release/6.3/10.0/17134.286/1803, Cygwin 64 2.11.1, and default

on W10 Home I see only double SYSTEM on both "getent passwd" and
"getent group"

However "getent passwd" is not reporting local user, cyg_server, sshd,
guest that instead are reported by "mkpasswd"
