I’ve checked with kmymoney (as it had all dirs in place) just now! Although the build and staging directory are still there:
$ ls build local-inst
CMakeCache.txt	CPackConfig.cmake	 CoberturaLcovResults.xml  Testing		      config-kmymoney.h  install_manifest.txt  libkgpgfile
CMakeFiles	CPackSourceConfig.cmake  JUnitTestResults.xml	   cmake_install.cmake	      cppcheck.xml	 kmymoney
CMakeTmp	CTestTestfile.cmake	 Makefile		   config-kmymoney-version.h  doc		 libkdchart

the created environment does NOT contain the staging directory, but the _install_ one.

See above. :-/
