I agree, that OpenWrt differs - and i have a usecase:

we like to have special helpers like

alias n='wget -qO -'
(for OLSRd)

and we source/include a special 'metascript' which
makes adminstration much easier. for now we patch /etc/profile
but having it in profile.d is more clean and: it is automatically
removed if package XY is also removed...
