This would most certainly not happen given only the claimed "steps to reproduce".  You must have had a previous postgres installation in there at some point.  Was there really nothing in /var/lib/pgsql/data/ except the pg_log subdirectory?  Can you recall just how you got to this state?

Closing for lack of response.
