Removing it is fine with me too.

I added it there last April to help with moving to a different
RCD_SCRIPTS_EXAMPLEDIR (which I have been doing for a couple years now).

It was part of Greg Wood's PR #22954 also.

But if we agree that share/examples/rc.d/ is the only choice (which is
fine with me), then we could get rid of this auto-registration.

or something to imply that it should not be changed? Or we could just
hard-code the path itself.
