What reason(s) do you have for the preference ?

If you use %{_libdir} then you will have to deal with multi-lib which,
in my opinion, needlessly complicates paths in the environment-modules
files.

If you use %{_libexecdir} then you do *not* have to worry about any
multilib issues -- they are automatically sorted out for you.
