Yes.

OK, If you really want to explore deeper and have 30 minutes to investigate then do the following:

1.) Download Microsoft Message Analyzer
2.) Launch the program as Administrator and choose "New Session"
3.) Click the "Add Provider" button and add the Microsoft-Windows-Windows Defender ETW provider to the session.
4.) Choose an appropriate log level (Verbose is default)
4.) Click 'Start'

You will get a very verbose log of what exactly Windows Defender is doing internally.

You can use this to see if Windows Defender is repeatedly scanning the same file/files/folder. Unfortunately I don't think there is a public OPN Parser available for this provider.
