I did check this with my Git for Windows installation before posting. 
Mine is older (2.7.0) though so maybe things have changed:

  pds@build-win MINGW64 ~
  $ type -a ls
  ls is aliased to `ls -F --color=auto --show-control-chars'
  ls is /usr/bin/ls
  ls is /bin/ls
  ls is /usr/bin/ls
  ls is /usr/bin/ls

Clearly I have a lot of duplicates on my PATH now that I notice :)

I have /mingw64/bin on my PATH as well but looking there it has git,
gettext, edit, a bunch of DLL's, etc. but it doesn't contain ls or
other coreutils programs.
