PAP auth fails on new install/config of freeradius v 2.1.12

In the debug output freeradius –X I see the “WARNING: Please update your
configuration and remove ‘Auth-Type = Local’”

I have looked at all the config files and don’t seem to be finding
Auth-Type = Local.

I thought it should be found in sites-enabled/default

Can someone please point me to where I’m missing that.
