However, another package that I am maintaining does not get any notes from the check on the win-builder (including fortran-code), so there is still something I don't understand here.

at least not automatically, and not very probably in my gut
feeling... but I may be wrong.

Did you use  R CMD check --as-cran  <your_pkg>
on Linux ?
