Passing unmatched glob intact to the program has always been the
standard behaviour of shells for decades, and is not specific to
"the shell that is shipped with msysgit", no?

I would imagine that msysgit could be shipped with man pages for
bash, but I doubt anybody would consult it when hitting this "I
typed * in an empty directory" situation.  In any case, what to
include in the package is something msysgit folks to decide.
