Cygwin is Unix emulation on Windows and thus GnuPG considers the
platform to be unix.  In turn /etc/resolv.conf is required.

Use the standard Windows GnuPG and you get Windows features.  Or, well,
use the Tor support which redirects all DNS over Tor.  Just install the
Tor Browser and GnuPG will use that.
