Changes to ct.sym in JDK 12

Hello experts,

  I see that the ct.sym has been restructured in JDK 12. Specifically, I am curious about the fact that even for non modular releases such as 7 and 8, I see the classes being placed inside their respective modules.

Is it just about consistency? Are the modules always ignored or is there a scenario where the modular structure will be useful?

Sorry if this was discussed already, but I couldn't find much about this particular change.
