Yes, they do, but I have no idea what that has to do with your 
suggestion to use -exec.  If you had suggested eliminating the use of 
-print as redundant, your suggestion would be merely inefficient rather 
than a non sequitur.

You could, but that would run "grep" once for each file where xargs will 
run grep the minimum number of times.  Using xargs is substantially faster.

Having said that, I see that find has an option of which I was 
previously unaware.  If you use the '+' character instead of the ';', it 
will behave more or less the same way that xargs does:

find /etc/ -type f -exec grep "ip rule" {} +
