Yes, Myth's upgrade code converted any "proper" config of the recordings 
directory to a Default storage group directory entry.  There are ways 
that it might not have been able to do so depending on the state of the 
data at the point of the upgrade, or it may not have been done due to 
other factors (patches applied at one point that incorrectly incremented 
the DB schema version or ...), or it may have been done and then someone 
deleted the storage group definition, or someone may have changed the 
host name but did not do so correctly, or ...

The point, however, was supposed to be that any database used with 0.20 
would have had the old setting.
