I'm not sure where your and my systems differ. But on mine,
cron.daily is certainly NOT ignored. I get daily logwatch
reports from there and my locate database is updated from
In fact, since I learned about the systemD mechanism for
daily updates of the locate database, I activated it to
see the effect and I'm getting twice daily updates.
The crond manpage says it reads /etc/anacrontab. It is
from there that daily/weekly/monthly get executed.
