It's a compile-time option in the ssh build process.  The man pages for
ssh and sshd on the local system should show the location in the section
FILES.  The man page is built by the same process as the binary so they
should match.

Debian puts them in /etc/ssh/, but I'm not sure that's the OpenSSH
upstream default.
