That's right.  It is a subdirectory of a directory in `load-path'.
It is not, itself, in `load-path'.

It doesn't seem right to me, but I'm probably naive.  I wouldn't
think that it should be a completion at all, since (a) it is not
itself an Emacs-Lisp library in the load-path and (b) there are
no such libraries within it.  I would expect TAB to say that there
are no completions.

I would expect that even if this directory were itself a member
of the load-path (which it is not).

But if this is the intended design, no problem.  It just didn't
seem like TRT to me.  IOW, I didn't expect it.
