I've been using /boot for the boot loader, and /lib/modules for kernel
modules. At present, I have the boot loader packaged together with the kernel,
but that may change later.

AFAICS, on FreeBSD the paths for kernel, boot loader, modules, etc. are
customizable, so I see no reason not to use standard Debian locations.
They aren't really that different, and are pretty reasonable.
