That's 100% UPS policy for residential delivery: they can leave it
seemingly anywhere unless the sender has paid extra for
signature verification. My favorite location is in the bushes,
where it will be found months later after the weather has
attacked it. (For those of you in California, "weather" can
be things like rain, the frozen rain we call "snow", etc.)

Think about the alternative: UPS trucks driving endlessly to
attempt to deliver packages to residential addresses where
no one is there to accept the package...
