Sure it does:

               VVVVVVVVVVVVVVV
  c:\>cygcheck /usr/bin/ls.exe
  C:\cygwin\bin\ls.exe
    c:\cygwin\bin\cygwin1.dll
      C:\WINXP\system32\ADVAPI32.DLL
	C:\WINXP\system32\KERNEL32.dll
	  C:\WINXP\system32\ntdll.dll
	C:\WINXP\system32\RPCRT4.dll
	  C:\WINXP\system32\Secur32.dll
    c:\cygwin\bin\cygintl-8.dll
      c:\cygwin\bin\cygiconv-2.dll
	c:\cygwin\bin\cyggcc_s-1.dll

And also:

  bash-3.2$ cd /cygdrive/c/winxp/system32
  bash-3.2$ cygcheck ./cmd.exe
  C:\winxp\system32\cmd.exe
    C:\winxp\system32\KERNEL32.dll
      C:\winxp\system32\ntdll.dll
    C:\winxp\system32\msvcrt.dll
    C:\winxp\system32\USER32.dll
      C:\winxp\system32\GDI32.dll
