:verbose set wildignore?

A similar question is here, while an unanswered one is here. Obviously both didn't help me.

How to debug this? How do I display hidden files/folders when using tab?

    If I hit .<Tab>, I get hidden files (.<C-d> too) – D. Ben Knoble Oct 5 '20 at 22:37
  • @D.BenKnoble this also lists hidden files for me. However, I want hidden files to show up next to non hidden ones when using <TAB> alone. – Stefan Oct 6 '20 at 5:02
