The use case is to have a place for executables that are treated
similarly to libraries by other executables.
For example, tcpd gets run by inetd but not by humans, so it
would be silly to have it on root's PATH, so you put it in
sftp-server gets run by sshd but is not a library, so it would
be silly to have it in /usr/lib, so you put it in libexec.
