default path of installed applications

I've install Arch on WSL (I'm newbie to Linux).

After created user with "user add -m user" and type which <app>, I found almost every apps directed to /usr/sbin but not /usr/bin
Did I create user in wrong way?
Isn't /usr/sbin is only default path to system user?

By the way, apps path on my Arch Linux laptop (installed by archinstall) showing /usr/sbin

Sorry for my poor English.

Re: default path of installed applications

/sbin is a symlink to /usr/bin so it doesnt matter

Re: default path of installed applications

If you use bash, use type, not which.
https://unix.stackexchange.com/question … o-use-then

And the "app" is not in /usr/bin, the app's binary is.
The "app"[lication] is spread across the filesystem, mostly under /usr.
