Surprisng?

.. and you have read?

    https://cygwin.com/cygwin-ug-net/ntsec.html#ntsec-mapping-passwdinfo

where it reads:

So, what settings can we perform with /etc/nsswitch.conf? Let's start with
 an example /etc/nsswitch.conf file set up to all default values:

  # /etc/nsswitch.conf
  passwd: files db
  group:  files db

  db_enum:  cache builtin
  db_home:  /home/%U <=========
  db_shell: /bin/bash
  db_gecos: <empty>

Perhaps you can infer this default from:

    https://cygwin.com/

where it reads: Cygwin - Get this __Linux__ feeling ...
