The dhcpcd client will deposit some files in this directory,
which keep track of the state of its IP address lease, etc.
You don't need to create/edit anything in this directory, just
the /etc/sysconfig info.  For what it is worth, you can use
the -L option to put this directory somewhere else (e.g., /var/run)
if you like, although you may also have to do something funny
during the configuration.  It's been a while, I'm having a hard
time remembering.
