They will be from tinydns.

The /command, /package and /service directories are what Dan Bernstein
uses in his software (qmail, djbdns, daemontools, etc). If you dont have
any of his software installed, you can safely remove these directories.

DJB software typically has service installation software included and
that creates those directories. The debian packages also include a -fhs
variant that puts the files in FHS compliant places.
