Perhaps someone considers it "deprecated", but the script itself is
silent on the issue.  Here is /etc/rc.local from my up-to-date Sid

#!/bin/sh -e
# rc.local
# This script is executed at the end of each multiuser runlevel.
# Make sure that the script will "exit 0" on success or any other
# value on error.
# In order to enable or disable this script just change the execution
# bits.
# By default this script does nothing.

exit 0

Since rc.local is excuted last and there are times when a custon local
script may need to run earlier, I've simply created my scripts in
/usr/local/etc/init.d and then created symlinks into the /etc/rc.*
directories as needed.  It has worked very well for me.
