 It turns out there's more to the story.  There are actually two
 pkgpath.conf files that are not installed by postinstall, the one in
 /etc/defaults and another in /etc.  I didn't notice that the security
 script actually sources the latter, which in turn sources the former.
 There doesn't seem to be an existing category in postinstall in which
 one could piggyback installation of /etc/pkgpath.conf.
 I still urge consideration of eliminating those files and setting both
 defaults in /etc/security or /etc/defaults/security.conf, with user
 overrides going in /etc/security.conf.
