Personally I understand contrib/ modules as third-part plugins that
are considered as not enough mature to be part of src/backend or
src/bin, but one day they could become so. See pg_upgrade's recent
move for example. src/extensions/ includes third-part plugins that are
thought as useful, are part of the main server package, but are not
something that we want to enable by default.
