Does "js-components" get created automatically when you import the "vue" package?

I'm working through this tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DJ6PD_jBtU0

At one point, it asks you to do an "npm install" and you're loading up these dependencies:

  "devDependencies": {
        "axios": "^0.19",
        "cross-env": "^5.1",
        "laravel-mix": "^4.0.7",
        "lodash": "^4.17.13",
        "resolve-url-loader": "^2.3.1",
        "sass": "^1.15.2",
        "sass-loader": "^7.1.0",
        "vue-template-compiler": "^2.6.10"

Not more than a couple of minutes later in the tutorial, it asks you to go to the "resources -> assets -> js -> components" directory and create a .vue file.

The folder doesn't exist. There is no "components" directory and I'm wondering, since the tutorial didn't specify creating it if perhaps something was supposed to happen when I did the "npm install."

I can obviously create it, but I'm new to Laravel and I'm wondering if the "vue-template-compiler" wasn't supposed to create that and something went wrong.

Does "assets ->js-components" get created when you load in the .vue dynamic? Or can I just create that myself and Laravel will know to refer to that when I start creating the .vue files?
