   Do you mean *copying* package.tar.gz into /packages should install the 
   package? or you mean *extracting* the package.tar.gz into /packages?

It could.  But the normal practise for now would be to make a link
from /packages into /stow.

/packages is simply a container directory for packages, it could be
anything.  /stow is where you either create a symbolic link or copy
the package, to install it.
