Yes. I _don't know what the exact platform behavior is_.
I suspect you should know more about as an expert in build tools.

What I know exactly that when you build cross-tool for specific
platform, you also build the bintools for that platform.
And when you run "ar" from command line the following output can be seen:

example for Mgw
ar: supported targets: pe-i386 pei-i386 elf32-i386 elf32-little
elf32-big srec symbolsrec tekhex binary ihex

example for arm-linux
arm-linux-ar: supported targets: elf32-littlearm elf32-bigarm
elf32-little elf32-big srec symbolsrec tekhex binary ihex
