IIRC, /boot/efi/* is created by the initial anaconda install sequence
and is in place in case you use UEFI at some point in the future. Since
it's only about 15MB in size, it's pretty innocuous and I wouldn't
worry about it. Ubuntu's install mechanism isn't the same and it
probably doesn't create that directory unless it notices you are in UEFI
boot mode at the time of install.

Which is better? I sorta like Fedora...it's there in case you need it
and it really doesn't take up much space. Your browser cache probably
sucks up more disk than /boot/efi does.
