At / and one level below, not deeper (or you are using a different
shell than me, use ls -R attribute if you want to recurse).

It is the shell, that is expanding the *, not ls and not something
"inside Unix".  The command above will be processed by the shell and
ls is actually invoked as

ls /bin /dev /etc /home /lib /opt /sbin /tmp /usr /var

or similar.
