Installing new fan in daughter's house.
Take down old fan and see this:
Door Automotive lighting Door handle Circle Metal

No junction box; just the mounting plate for the fan. Installer had screwed a screw hook through the middle hole of the plate into ceiling joist until the end of the hook scrapped the face of the plate, thus securing it to the joist.
Wood Tool Gas Electric blue Audio equipment

For good measure, two meaningless drywall screws had been used (went into drywall and not joist).
This house never disappoints on how not to but points are given for inventiveness.
