/usr/sbin : Non-essential standard system binaries
This directory contains any non-essential binaries used exclusively by the
system administrator. System administration programs that are required for
system repair, system recovery, mounting /usr, or other essential functions
must be placed in /sbin instead.
Of course, where it really gets installed depends on whether you use a package
supplied by your distro or not, and if so, what your distro chooses to do.
If instead you package/install it yourself, then it of course depends on
where you choose to install it yourself... If you have both a distro package
and your own install, then check your PATH to see which one is being used.
