could also be clear-text : smtp account password(s), network-manager
saves connection passwords there, system backup passwords, mysql also
has debian-sys-maint password. and there are probably more clear-text
examples in /etc/

apart from clear-text passwords, most encryption keys for daemons are
stored in /etc.

/var/lib is mostly data.. mysql data, dns data, tor data, etc.

/var/backups ....


and yes, swap can be encrypted too, very very easily.
