Use of %E in system_printf().

I've been looking around Cygwin again and found this:

system_printf ("couldn't get memory info, %E");

Now I am curious where does the %E get handled? Is it supposed to print
GetLastError()? I looked into strace.h and but I don't see anything
that would handle it. Besides that, %E is afaik also format for printing
