Is there any definition of how libraries are supposed to build?

I've integrated the building of required boost libraries into the build
system for our projects. There seems to be some inconsistency in what
gets built and where it gets put. In particular, for the thread and
regex libs, boost builds both shared and static versions of the
libraries and puts them in a bin-stage subdirectory under the library
build directory. However, for the filesystem library, only the static
library gets built and the bin-stage/ directory is not used.

Is there a standard behavior library developers are supposed to follow
in this regard?

Can I count on the bin-stage/ as a short-named location for the most
recent build of any library?

Are the boost or boost_filestsystem maintainers interested in the simple
fix to the Jamfile to make that library behave like the other two I
