Honestly, I'm not sure. But if they do, Explorer doesn't know about
it, and Windows shortcuts don't do any of it. Even plain old symlinks
are more capable than shortcuts; only Explorer really understands them
and not always then.

Shortcuts, Junctions, Hard links and Symbolic links, all different.

Symbolic links are the only ones that can span different volumes AFAIK.
