    Don't know what you mean.
    There some things that may look like dummy folder.
    Starting with softlinks

    A Link to a different folder, will be shown as the different folder in the position of the link
    Example:
    Link: /home/user -> /share/user
    Will show you the files of /share/user when you write: ls /home/user

    Empty folder
    Some Programms use folder for additional scripts ... like the folders:
    /etc/cron.d
    This may be a empty folder, but the right file can change the behaver of software dramatic *gg* like it starts working.

    Other empty folder like:
    /media/sda1 ????
