It depends on whether you consider that file location to be "API" or not.
that upstream considers them to belong in /usr/bin, I'd guess that probably
there aren't any other packages relying on these executables living in that
I only found one but I have not investigated further:
# dnf repoquery --whatrequires /usr/sbin/rpcinfo
Local Packages for Fedora 24 30 MB/s | 70 kB 00:00
If there are, you might want to just move them and leave a symlink
