bson_threading man page

Threading — None Libbson's data structures are NOT thread‐safe. You are responsible for accessing and mutating these structures from one thread at a time.

Libbson requires POSIX threads (pthreads) on all UNIX‐like platforms. On Windows, the native threading interface is used. Libbson uses your system's threading library to safely generate unique ObjectIds , and to provide a fallback implementation for atomic operations on platforms without built‐in atomics.
