The mode is specified there, actually. Things probably blur together a bit,
but there are indeed three parameters there. That last parameter, S_IRUSR |
S_IWUSR, is the symbolic way to represent mode 0600.

Using docker on windows they get created as rwxr-xr-x but that is a

My suspicion is that Windows is ignoring the specified value, that the
underlying filesystem doesn't support UNIX-style file permissions, or that
something else at the system level is overriding things back to 0755.
