Makes sense, only an object store would have this.

No, only the zero size "files".

This is really for compat with regular filesystems.

If you have /tmp/1/foo in an object store that's a single key. That does not imply you'll
find "/tmp" or "/tmp/1" in the object store keys.

A FileSystem however assumes parent directories are "real things", so any FileSystem abstraction
has to maintain "/tmp", "/tmp/1/" and "/tmp/1/foo" to keep up the basic compatibility requirements
of fs.exists("/tmp").
