One is my home Solaris server 11.3, the other is a customer's Solaris 10 
install from way back when.

Nothing changes behavior like that from version-to-version of Solaris. 
Solaris 11 as a whole was a big jump in terms of GNU user-land stuff, 
etc, so that behavior was changed, again, probably because as of 11, you 
had to create a regular user during the install.

I just checked Solaris 7 and 8 (x86), which are both "vanilla" installs 
I did to a VMware guest. On both, useradd used /home - an 11.2 guest 
used /export/home
