Update-alternatives used to be on the opkg repo. I did a search there
all the way to the first commit on 2008-12-15 , but even then
/usr/lib was used. I can't think of a design consideration that would
make /usr/lib more palatable than the Debian default.
Maybe someone with more knowledge of the previous history can chime in?
