Follow-up Comment #6, bug #56410 (project findutils):

No, {} always expands to the file being considered, whether or not file
properties are examined with stat (find -L) or lstat (find -P).  This mostly
makes a difference for the final file name component, since find follows
directory symlinks when descending through the file system.
