Those are "front-ends".  The real code lives in etc/bin/[cmd|inter].
This is an old separation when there were different command line and
interactive modules.  Almost all modules now do duel duty using
G_parser(), so hopefully this weird set-up will disappear in 5.1 as the
remaining modules get proper parser interfaces.  These links are what
the gmakelinks5 script handles... It won't hurt anything to put the
module in bin, but you could put it in etc/bin/cmd and run gmakelinks5
for fun...
