It's an unfortunate fact of life that different Linux distros tend to
put stuff in different places.  Whenever documentation from the
original/source project maintainer(s) refers to "/usr/local/...", you
can be assured they're talking about if you build and install their
package from the source tarball and that Linux distro people will put
stuff Somewhere Else, often a wildly different Somewhere Else.

samba_upgradedns told me where it would be, in my case.
