Sorry for the late response here.

This issue has been discussed before.

Storing user files in the application bundle like this, and expecting the user 
to discover them by control-clicking or right-clicking on the app icon, IS 
WRONG. Apple DOES NOT EXPECT users to even know that this is possible. It is a 
power user concept.

These things should be stored in /Library/Application Support/LyX/templates or 
/Library/Application Support/LyX-2.1/templates (as appropriate) and the path in 
the application should point there.

A possible fallback is to store them in the app bundle, but make them 
accessible from menus within the app so that reverting to control-clicking on 
the app bundle is not necessary.

I thought this had been fixed.

 Dear all,
 
 Is anybody aware that templates are not installed when installing Lyx on OS 
 X? Is there something I am missing? I remember that on previous versions 
 one should run some configuration tool after installation, but this tool is 
 nowhere to be found in Lyx 2.1.1.

On the Mac installation, they get buried inside of the app package.

Find LyX.app in your applications folder
Right click on it and select show package contents
Then go to Contents - Resources - templates

On my installation of LyX, 
File - New from Template goes to  /Library/ApplicationSupport/LyX/templates 
so that may be a more convenient place for the templates to be placed.
