smpasswd is more like /etc/passwd.
It could perhaps be argued that maybe it should go under /var/lib.
In any case, smbpasswd isn't a requirement for using a samba server,
I believe you can use network based authentication...

I wouldn't complain if nobody updates sendmail...
Why does hotplug need to be changed?
/etc/ntp.drift and/or /etc/adjtime might be a problem, I gather not only
to they need to be writable at boot time, but the state needs to be
preserved across boots.
