Where?
I searched the entire source code for the 16.04 version of the docs and didn't get a hit for "lib64".

I chose to interpret this as a matter of symlinks in general. For symlinks there is indeed a "Link target" property in Files. OTOH hand the docs page describes *basic* properties, and maybe the link target property was skipped in the docs intentionally.

@Christopher: The "Files properties" page is an upstream GNOME Help page today, so if you think it's important enough, you may want to submit an upstream issue:

https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gnome-user-docs/issues

Personally I don't think this is important enough to change in Ubuntu only, neither in 16.04 nor in the development version, so setting "Won't fix".
