It is a side effect.
The + indicates that the ACL contains more entries than necessary to
represent the Unix modes.
In the case of directories Cygwin always inserts extra "default" entries
in the ACL (visible with getfacl).
They control the permissions of files created by most Windows programs
and by Cygwin programs running with nontsec.
