The file system standard is that /usr/share is for arch independent
files and that /usr/man and /usr/doc should actually be /usr/share/man
and /usr/share/doc but you shouldn't put libs in there. The idea is
that this can be shared across machines of varying arch types.
This leaves /usr/lib/appname/ to put your plugins, as they are actually
libraries. Putting them straight into /usr/lib/ would be nasty though,
there's enough stuff in there already.
I don't think libexec gets a mention in the FHS at all. You can get it
