I'm stumped and confused. I don't understand how NetBSD could do that (not create a database file; a file with the .cdb extension). According to the man page for tic:

    The tic utility compiles terminfo(5) source into a database for use by
    other programs.  The created database path name is the same as the source
    but with .cdb appended.

The .terminfo directory and subdirecotry you describe is what I see on Arch
Linux, but not NetBSD.
