/usr/local/bin or /usr/local/sbin, /etc/opt, or /opt will be seen on servers as primary places to put software only because /usr/bin, /bin, and /usr/sbin would be overwritten on upgrades.

Many times application software would be placed on a partition all it own to keep system files and application files separate.
