On debian, they get installed in /usr/local/lib/python3/dist-packages/ntp

On Fedora, they go in /usr/local/lib64/python3.9/site-packages/ntp

I'm interested in the python3.9 vs python3 (not the lib vs lib64 or site- vs 

Which is better, why? ...  How does waf decide where to put things?

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
