If by "'official' gluster packages" you mean the glusterfs rpms in the 
fedora/epel yum repo, and your 3.2.5 was built from source or using rpms 
from somewhere else, including e.g. gluster.org, then your experience is 
not unexpected.

The rpms in the fedora/epel yum repo follow the fedora file system 
layout standard and as you note, you needed to move your .vol files to 
the correct location in this situation.

For the record, I'm not sure that the fedora/epel rpms are any more or 
less official than any others, and if anything, maybe the gluster.org 
rpms are the only really official gluster packages. (Unless you're 
paying for RHS, in which case there's a completely different answer.)

(And FWIW, starting with 3.3.0 the rpms from gluster.org will also 
follow the file system layout standard.)
