Yep, I've pretty much always added sbin to my non-root $PATH
for most of the last 30+ years.
Too much stuff that a 'techie' wants to run non-root is in there.

/usr/bin, /usr/sbin and /usr/lib should have got removed once
disks got large enough that the boot disk (aka /) didn't overflow
required some system files be moved into the 'user' disk.
(The last disks that weren't really big enough were the 600MB ones.
The user's home directories could go into /usr where they belong.
