Yes the light sensor is connected via the camera cable (ALS). The reason it is working in OS X and not Windows is probably driver related. ALS is only responsible for turning the keyboard backlight off if the ALS detects too much light, so if it is unplugged it will not affect keyboard backlight functionality.
