 From vnstat homepage :
vnStat is a console-based network traffic monitor for Linux and BSD that 
keeps a log of network traffic for the selected interface(s).

the network interface names like enps30 are created by by systemd/udev , 
BSD uses other methods.
Placing logfiles in /var/log makes perfect sense for every system that 
doesn't run systemd.

Also this .conf file is the one provided by upstream, and Arch Linux 
devs prefer a minimal patching approach, keeping packages as close to 
upstream as possible.
