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
