Uhm, I think you are mistaken, or I missed something.

The directory is created when unpacking the deb file:

$ dpkg -L prometheus-alertmanager | grep /var/lib/

Then the post-installation script does this:

chown -R prometheus:prometheus /var/lib/prometheus/alertmanager || true
chown -R prometheus:prometheus /var/log/prometheus || true

And the initsciprt does this (as root):

mkdir -p `dirname $PIDFILE` || true
chown -R $USER: `dirname $LOGFILE`
chown -R $USER: `dirname $PIDFILE`

So, I don't know where you saw that mkdir, nor where it could be a problem.
