-print-libgcc-file-name gives thumb while -marm is used

Dear Forum,

Using

and doing -print-libgcc-file-name

arm-none-eabi-gcc -marm -mcpu=cortex-a7 -mfloat-abi=hard -mfpu=neon-vfpv4 -print-libgcc-file-name
/opt/gcc-arm-none-eabi/bin/../lib/gcc/arm-none-eabi/9.2.1/thumb/v7ve+simd/hard/libgcc.a

I would not expect to see 'thumb'

However, there are no arm libraries for Cortex-A7: 

$ arm-none-eabi-gcc -print-multi-lib
.;
arm/v5te/softfp;@marm@march=armv5te+fp@mfloat-abi=softfp
arm/v5te/hard;@marm@march=armv5te+fp@mfloat-abi=hard

thumb/v7/nofp;@mthumb@march=armv7@mfloat-abi=soft

thumb/v8-a+simd/hard;@mthumb@march=armv8-a+simd@mfloat-abi=hard

Where aren't their arm versions of the libgcc? And just thumb versions only?

Many thanks in advance, Arjan
