The leading "." in a file or directory name is not special to the find
command, so it will treat those names just like any other. Of course if you run something like "find * ...", then it's your shell
that is expanding the "*", and find
sees only the result of that, and shells typically do not, at least by default, include dotfiles in that expansion.
