It's news to me and it's not listed in the Gnulib portability gotcha list.
What happens if you run the attached program on macOS? It creates a file
"file" and then tries to access it as a directory, which should not work.
It succeeds and prints nothing (i.e. the error is ENOTDIR in all cases).
So this is even more mysterious than I thought.
However, when I change "file" to "/usr/bin/true" in the names list, the issue happens again (i.e. lstat and faccessat succeed for "/usr/bin/true/."). So this does appear to be a macOS bug, but it's not consistently reproducible.
