They are the same animal hardlinked...
$ ll /sbin/mkfs.ext3 -i
4943338 -rwxr-xr-x 3 root root 38752 Sep 8 17:38 /sbin/mkfs.ext3
$ ll /sbin/mkfs.ext2 -i

Not sure about controlling the automount point. If you are okay maybe
losing the automount action, you can just edit /etc/fstab and remove the
"managed" token, and adjust the mountpoint away from /media/blah.
There's probably a better way in the newfangled udev and other stuff
that makes this magic work but I know nothing about it.
If you had enough investigations for now, I guess you can make a symlink
ln -s /media/usbdisk /opt
for example and get on with your master plan.
