Using "pacman -Qo" to find the owner of a symbolic link

Is there a way to get pacman to show the package owner of a file which is a symbolic link?  Note that I would like to know what owns the link file itself and not the file to which it points.

Re: Using "pacman -Qo" to find the owner of a symbolic link

It's standard behavior as far as I can see.

$  ls -l /sbin/shutdown 
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 18 Oct  3 23:14 /sbin/shutdown -> /usr/bin/systemctl
$  pacman -Qo /sbin/shutdown 
/sbin/shutdown is owned by systemd-sysvcompat 194-1
