as an exception to the rule, a Guix system contains /bin/sh, which on my
machine looks like this:

$ ll /bin
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root  2  5. Nov 2019  bash -> sh
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 61 17. Apr 09:51 sh -> 

$ ll /gnu/store/d99ykvj3axzzidygsmdmzxah4lvxd6hw-bash-5.1.8/bin
-r-xr-xr-x 2 root root 951344  1. Jan 1970  bash
-r-xr-xr-x 1 root root   6791  1. Jan 1970  bashbug
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root      4  1. Jan 1970  sh -> bash

So everything is bash in the end, but I do not know whether bash behaves
differently if it is called under the name "sh". You could give it a try.
