It's pretty normal/conventional for daemons to be in $sbin, I think.

I think the point is that although daemons might normally be started by
an initscript it is also allowable (and occasionally useful) to start
them by hand or via other means. In contrast to something like the
libxl-save-helper which is something which does belong in libexec.

I'd be reluctant to change this without a reference to something like
the FHS to back up why it should be in libexec.
