It isn't, which could have easily been tested.

That's most likely caused by configuring the C:\ drive as the root of
Cygwin and/or additional configurations not mentioned by the OP.  You'd
have to run man-db in debugging / dry-run mode to see how it gets to the
conclusion that it should scan all those sub-directories and
sub-sub-directories in the root.  It doesn't do that by default and I am
unable to reproduce it.
