Nor are the kernel modules in Linux... Thus, quoting the FHS:

  ``/lib : Essential shared libraries and kernel modules''

As the Hurd works with a µ-kernel, the Hurd servers do precisely what,
in Linux, the loadable modules do, and they are in /lib.

It's not as evident and undoubtable as you seem to think. As far as how
I understand the FHS, you're not. But maybe the question should be asked
to FHS gurus, or more accurately to the FHS editors.
