Is it still true (due to the way Go works) that one should not use a "vendor" folder in a Hugo project?

I was going to post a link to the Discourse thread, but somewhere bep (I believe) said in an answer that “due to the way Go works” one should not use a directory / folder named “vendor” in a Hugo Project.

I’m just wondering if that is still true? In converting a bootstrap HTML templates for use in Hugo, I often see a “vendor” directory for libraries that one would ordinarily put somewhere in either /assets or /static, for example.

I thought perhaps this was an answer that no longer applied to current Hugo versions, but thought I would check. Thanks!
