It seems like using libexecdir is not yet fully supported? (It used to
be /usr/lib, which worked.)

It is supported, nevertheless for some types of of files the former
used %_libexecdir becomes %_prefix/lib for getting then right placed

E.g. /usr/lib/emacs/<version>/ is now /usr/libexec/emacs/<version>/
/usr/lib/systemd/ remains at /usr/lib/systemd/
... only the binaries below /usr/lib/systemd/ might be moved to a new
/usr/libexec/systemd/ ... if the (auto)configuration scripts do support
this :)

OMG. I already feared that this introduction of libexecdir would
lead to mindlessly changing packages to from /usr/lib/<directory> to
/usr/libexec. That's just an unnecessary exercise to keep yourself
busy though. Packages that already use a subdir in /usr/lib are fine
to place whatever they want there. libexec is just superfluous in such
