Anacron is what's used and that uses /etc/anacrontab.  The last few
lines of the file:
    #period in days   delay in minutes   job-identifier   command
    1       5       cron.daily                     nice run-parts
    7       25     cron.weekly                  nice run-parts
    @monthly 45     cron.monthly        nice run-parts /etc/cron.monthly

I can't say if /etc/crontab is still used.  It has no lines like what's
above to do anything.

As for mlocate it's now a (or part of a) service:
    [mcallman@draco ~]$ systemctl | grep -i locate
      loaded active waiting   Updates mlocate database every day
