Well, the reason */libexec exists is to avoid overloading the meaning
of */lib to include things other than libraries.  Just as /sbin was
invented (way back in the day) to stop overloading /etc with things
other than config files.

I agree, though, that unless the FHS decides to adopt libexec, there's
little point in Debian doing so.
