Your locale is zh_CN.UTF-8. What you're expecting is only guaranteed in
the C locale:
$ LANG=C && echo abcdeABCDE | sed -e 's/[B-D]/_/g'
The character ordering is based on the default Windows ordering for the
locale, and that's dictionary ordering, apparently.
This is unfortunately different from the default ordering under Linux,
but off the top of my head I don't see how to change that.
I'll have a look, though, but no guarantees. It's been a long time
since working on Cygwin's NLS functions...
