It is not non-standard for FreeBSD packages. vpopmail get's installed to /usr/local/vpopmail. This is in accordance with man hier. All FreeBSD packages install into /usr/local. /home, or rather /usr/home (/home is a symlink) is where user created files should live, not system libraries and binaries.

From man hier:

local/ local executables, libraries, etc. Also used as the default destination for the FreeBSD ports framework. Within local/, the general layout sketched out by hier for /usr should be used. Exceptions are the man directory (directly under local/ rather than
