Matthew may be right about anacron - though I can't imagine why anacron
would be installed if cron isn't. It was a surprise to me that cron isn't
a hard dependency for anacron.
In any case, _many_ packages will create those directories - I count 22
on my system. IE, any package that _does_ set up a daily cron task will
create /etc/cron.daily if it doesn't already exist.
