Works for me
I do, as elevated Admin (with MariaDB 5.5.31 installed)
shell> mkdir C:\datadir shell> mklink C:\datadir "C:\Program Files (x86)\MariaDB 5.5\data\foo"
mysql -uroot mysql>use foo; mysql>create table t(i int); mysql>quit;
shell>dir C:\datadir Volume in drive C is OS Volume Serial Number is FAAA-8FC5
Directory of C:\datadir
25.06.2013 11:52 <DIR> . 25.06.2013 11:52 <DIR> .. 25.06.2013 11:52 8.554 t.frm
So, the frm file was created in symlinked directory.
