Indeed, I can confirm that building with debhelper compat >= 12 would install the "ubuntu-advantage-desktop-daemon" binary in the correct /usr/libexec directory. So this is a fair tradeoff with good reason (backwards compatibility without introducing a delta). Therefore I'll downgrade this "Required TODO" to a "Recommended TODO".

=> Mir team ACK.

As discussed out-of-band, we should still consider using something like "--libexecdir=/usr/libexec" in debian/rules to install that binary to /usr/libexec in a backwards compatible way, while adhering to Standards-Version: 4.1.5, as being used by this package.

N: Debian adopted the Filesystem Hierarchy Specification (FHS) version 3.0
N: starting with our policy revision 4.1.5. The FHS 3.0 describes
N: /usr/libexec. Please use that location for executables.
