It doesn't have it, staging only has esync right now and regular wine has neither.

If you really want to use/try it anyway without straight up using proton I patch gentoo's wine-staging for fsync support myself (there is minor maintenance work involved), I had an older post about it. If want it this is the adjusted patch I use for wine-staging-5.7, it's based on bit older TKG's with updates for 5.7 (current tkg patch "may" be needed for upcoming 5.8 but won't work for 5.7). Using TKG's patches as-is almost work but won't apply cleanly as a user patch without extra fuzz factor. Also don't use current patch for 5.6 or older, may apply but will cause build errors.

"export WINEFSYNC=1" to enable, and wine should say "fsync: up and running" if it's working fine.

The kernel's patch has been fine for a long time but wine's breaks relatively often, so may not be worth it unless you're okay dealing with that. I do hope it gets officially added to staging eventually, esync's multi-million file descriptor usage is just not great.. but then there's the lacking kernel support on the other hand :(
