Actually, if you look in those directories, you see that they're scripts
run on the specified interval by /usr/lib/cron/run-crons (itself run
once per minute by the entry in /etc/crontab). The actual crontabs
are /etc/crontab and the files in /etc/cron.d/ (and any per-user
crontab established via the crontab comman; they're recorded
in /var/spool/cron/tabs/).

Are you certain about the fact they run every minute? In my system they appear
to run every 15 minutes
-*/15 * * * * root test -x /usr/lib/cron/run-crons &&
/usr/lib/cron/run-crons >/dev/null 2>&1

Which makes perfect sense, as the 'smallest' interval the scripts have is
cron.hourly (so every 4 checks).
