Well I managed to figure it out.

Honestly, I did not figure out your challenge from your first post.
Regarding chown, it resolves a symlink (unless it is compatible with traditional BSD Unix).
For ex, if there is a symlink xxx -> /etc/passwd the chown will change the target /etc/passwd.
It is safer to use chown -h -R
