Is Trend Micro excluded .lnk file?

Just read this at https://blog.trendmicro.com/trendlabs-security-intelligence/rising-trend-attackers-using-lnk-files-d...

I just received an email forwarded by my boss with a zip attachment. Since she expected an answer, I need to open the file. When I unzipped the file, the folder contained 6 files of .lnk format. According to the link above, it is a file to download malware into Windows system.

My question is, is it because the .lnk files won't infect Mac system thus Trend Micro didn't detect it malicious or dangerous?

Every help is appreciated. Thanks.
