It's provided by busybox and installed by default, also greping for its usage in target/linux/x86/base-files returned nothing. Am I missing something, is the full fledged one used somewhere or by something?

They are not obsolete by any means, only the way to assign packages for specific device changes. Please take a look at patch nr 2 in this RFC and section adding target/linux/x86/image/geode.mk. There You have almost all packages replicated with additional geos device profile. Now You'll get two images, one generic, and one for geos. This distinction is here because with old way of adding packages, the generic image would end up with lot of useless, geos/dsl specific packages.

I have WRAP which runs perfectly fine with these changes.
