Same platform as you.  Here are my (possibly relevant) data for
comparison:

> ls -ld /var/empty
drwxr-xr-x+ 1 cyg_server root 0 Jan  3 11:36 /var/empty/
> egrep cyg_server /etc/passwd
cyg_server:unused:1003:513:Privileged
server,U-luther\cyg_server,S-1-5-21-3264347833-3381411623-2398912269-1003:/var/empty:/bin/bash
> egrep root /etc/group
root:S-1-5-32-544:0:
> egrep S-1-5-32-544 /etc/passwd
