AFAIK it is not emulated on Windows. LCL-Win32 reports LCLCapability
flag lcTextHint.
There is a related bug report :

I tested the emulation only with GTK2.
I should have mentioned the problem comes only when adding lines to a
Memo by code when the Memo has no focus.
It is demonstrated by the example project in issue #37553.

I don't have Windows now at all. I was hoping not to install it again
as I don't need it for anything. Maybe I must have it for Lazarus
testing anyway.
