This is my first time rooting so don't scold me if I missed something here. Yes I did a quick search and nothing immediately came up directly related to this.
/root is empty for a stock ROM. There's nothing that normally stores any data there.
Edit: it's there because it's the home directory for the root user.
My Android devices:
vzw Samsung Galaxy S4 stock NC5 rooted
Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, also stock but rooted.
VZ Droid Incredible 2 rooted but otherwise stock.
