Same in Ubuntu, the man ldconfig reads in part
ldconfig should normally be run by the super-user as it may require
write permission on some root owned directories and files. If you use -r
option to change the root directory, you don't have to be super-user
though as long as you have sufficient right to that directory tree.
So ldconfig as an executable is rightly placed in /sbin
However I think you are getting mixed up with /etc/ld.so.conf
I don't have one, but ldconfig 'still works' There is a ld.so.cache
/sbin/ldconfig is a binary file, so can't quickly tell what it is reading
