I'm not sure if there's a typical place, but that's not the reason for
/var/backups existing:  that directory is used by system maintenance
scripts for holding previous versions of a few specific critical files
(e.g., master.passwd).

I don't think of the directory location as all that important an
issue:  in my own backup scripts, I've always set it up as a tunable
variable, although I've never used it as anything other than the default.
