[Samba] Samba 4.13.3 - bind-dns directory empty

I created an installation tutorial for Samba 4.12.4 Domain Controller based
on my domain requirements on June/2020. When I've tested to follow this
tutorial to install Samba 4.13.3, I notice some inconsistency:

   1. /usr/local/samba/bind-dns/ is empty;
   2. When I seek to dns.keytab (find /usr/local/samba -i dns.keytab),
   nothing is returned, but I find a secrets.keytab in
   3. I don't find named.conf in /usr/local/samba/bind-dns or
   /usr/local/samba/private. This there is in /usr/local/samba/share

I verify my tutorial with the Samba Wiki topics "Setting up Samba as an
Active Directory Domain Controller", "Setting up a BIND DNS Server" and
"BIND9 DLZ DNS Back End" and I don't notice any difference between this
same pages that I accessed on June/2020.

I'm feeling pretty dumb by this. It seems I don't see something obvious.
