This is recommended to avoid using /usr/local as prefix, but it's not
the case for Multi-Arch.

No, this is an example of not Multi-Arch enabled path, it should look
like the following on for x86_64 (aka amd64):

It would be good if ibus can first find paths like this one, then
fallback to /usr/lib/<engine_package_name>. But it does need to verify
if binaries in the latter path are correct for the architecture that
ibus main program is compiled for.
