Follow-up Comment #1:

I can reproduce on Windows 10 in a Powershell window, but I can
not reproduce in a regular CMD window.

Reading about Powershell quoting rules, it seems that it still
evaluates "*" wildcards in single or double quotes.

Thus, find does not see the glob pattern you intended to pass,
but immediately the evaluated result of the wildcard matching
of the Powershell.
Therefore, this does not seem to be a bug in find, but more
a question in the calling shell, the Powershell.
