Where to put backup files - /var/backups? [Basic Directory Structure Question]

I have a dedicated hard-drive to store dump files on a daily basis.

Is there a typical mounting point in the FreeBSD directory structure that is
generally used for backup images? At the moment using /backup, but noticed
that there is a /var/backups directory created by sysinstall. Is this the
typical place the backups are stored?
