I do not know but here is a guess.  Wouldn't any user mount be that of
the current user?  Isn't that the point of user mounts - I only see my
own?  And if I'm root, I only see system mounts?

And if you want to see the user mounts of individual users, according to
the UG <>, that
should be in </etc/fstab.d/user_name>.

Otherwise, what about the following?
$ stat -c %U /mount_point

But if you are talking about, something that happened before a cygwin
process was lanched, I think you want to use the word "mapped", not
"mounted" and I can't say much more than that.
