I think you're still not understanding it.

It can. It does.
When it redirects to /, the location match starts again, and try_files
applies again, and you get the "rewrite or internal redirection cycle"
that you saw in the logs.
(Strictly, when you type b.cd in the browser, it requests /, so $uri is
not empty. But that's not related to what try_files does here.)
