      Cron is  checking  those  files  or  directories:  /etc/crontab system
      crontab   is  usually  for  running  daily,  weekly,  monthly jobs.
      /etc/cron.d/ where are system cronjobs stored for  different users.
      /var/spool/cron that’s mean spool directory for user crontables.

Not really done reliably already ;-). But indeed, soon.

That's not what I meant. I meant the main cronie and fcron packages
should not require crontabs.

I mean not have /etc/crontab from a package but rather do it by
hand. In fact it is a dependency of fcron-watch-config, so with fcron it
is not really possible to have a hand made /etc/crontab out of a
package.
