According to man page -A option is always set in ls(1) for root user.
This violates POSIX-2008

Despite -A option behaves like this at least since 1993, I propose
to remove this POSIX violation.
Those who need it may set 'alias ls=ls -A' in their profiles.

In my opinion this

is a bad solution, actually not a solution at all.
