Right.  The /usr/share/emacs/site-lisp hierarchy contains no
byte-compiled files; instead, as described in
/usr/share/doc/emacsen-common/debian-emacs-policy.gz, they go in
parallel trees under /usr/share/xemacs21/site-lisp et al.

However, the Debian auctex package does not bother to byte-compile for
XEmacs, which ends up taking everything other than tex-site (which
contains reasonably version-independent settings) from XEmacs's
bundled version in /usr/share/xemacs21/xemacs-packages/lisp/auctex.

Maybe, though I actually find the current setup to work pretty well,
even if it does take some getting used to at first.

Hm?  On my system (running current unstable), it reports finding both
in /usr/share/xemacs21/xemacs-packages/lisp/mail-lib/.
