The installed location of the files doesn't change, only their location
in the source tree.  It does seem that share/examples has not been
handled to date, as they probably belong in the same package as the thing
they are samples of.

I really wish that the Makefiles were smart enough to use .PATH or
some such to reach over into ${SRCTOP}/etc to find the files without
requiring them to actually move in the tree since it's not very
intuitive where to find many of these files now.  (And the source
locations are starting to no longer mimic the layout on the host,
such as syslog.d being "flattened".)
