Is "clean.followSymlinks" supposed to work yet?

It’s currently marked as incubating, so I’m not sure if that means it’s supposed to work yet.
Maybe it only works properly on Linux at the moment?

Versions: Windows 8, Gradle 3.3, Java 8

A tool I’m using as part of my build (Terraform) makes a symbolic link from my buildDir into my source code.
When I use the Gradle clean task to clean up the project, it’s deleting the source files.

If I recreate the source and re-build, then delete the link manually (press “delete” in Windows explorer) - the source doesn’t get deleted.

I’ve tried this in my build file:

clean {
 followSymlinks false

But it doesn’t seem to make the clean task not delete my source files.

My current workaround:

task unlinkTerraformOnWindows(type:Exec) {
  commandLine 'cmd', '/c', 'rmdir', '/q', '/s', file("$buildDir/.terraform")
  enabled Os.isFamily(Os.FAMILY_WINDOWS) &&
clean {
  dependsOn unlinkTerraformOnWindows
