I don't think it is specific to xbstream or streaming backups in general. XtraBackup copies files and creates directories if necessary. I don't think a directory will be created in the backup if it's empty, be it xbstream, or tar, or local backups.

I though we had a similar report for local backups, but I can't find it now.
