Packaging questions

I'm planing to package angband for Fedora 35, I've been studing the code and the compilation process and I feel that I have an understanding on how it works, but I still have some questions.

Is there a purpose to install the "customize" and "gamedata" folders in the "sysconfig" path (/etc) instead of saving them in the datadir together with the other game assets?

The files in lib/gamedata and lib/customize are intended to be customizable. Changes in lib/gamedata can alter the core gameplay so I'd probably not package them to be in /etc, but the Makefiles have installed them (or their predecessors from lib/edit) in /etc since at least Angband 3.2. The files from lib/customize seem like decent candidates for /etc (not sure how likely a site would want to change them, but setting site-specific keymaps or message colors seems appropriate for configuration files in /etc).
