The /etc/ntp/ directory.

I have a 7.0-CURRENT machine that I have upgraded time and time again, 
since the 5.3-CURRENT days. While looking into setting up ntpd, I came 
across the empty /etc/ntp/ directory. After perusing the man file, and the 
rcNG startup scripts, I don't see anything that makes a reference to this 
directory. The locations that I do find are:

ntpd.conf: /etc/ntpd.conf
ntp.drift: /var/db/ntpd.drift  /var/run/
Docs:      /usr/share/doc/ntp

I checked a fresh install of 6.0-RELEASE and this directory appears there 
too but again, without any references. On 4.11-STABLE, it does not exist. 
Is there any use at all for this directory?
