You don't say, but if this is CentOS 7, then cron.daily/weekly/monthly
is run using anacron, not cron.

It's configured in /etc/anacrontab and is usually run once a day by the
script /etc/cron.hourly/0anacron - cron.hourly is still run by cron. 
If the script doesn't exist, then anacron won't run and cron.daily etc
won't happen.
