I got a Helm of Command recipe sometime before p levels came out. I found it long before I found any actual legendaries, and having no idea how valuable it might be, immediately used it on my blacksmith. To this day, I haven't crafted a single one. Oh well.
Ive put some time into the game and ive been watching streamers that have put 1000s of hours into game, and have only had 1 to drop.
Yes they drop. Just so rarely that most people will never see one.
I have never seen a legendary BS recipe or any JC recipe drop ever. Does not mean they don't drop. Just means I'm not lucky enough to see one. And the odds are in favour of me never seeing one drop.
Found only 2 Legendary plan drops in well over 2200 hours of playing.
First one is the Lvl 32 WD mojo called Bitterness. Dropped sometime nearly a year ago. It's a Softcore drop. I occasionally make a few and they do sell but not for much more than the cost of the mats. They can be especially good if they spawn with a socket.
The other dropped recently (2 weeks ago) and it's the lvl 60 Set plan called Sage's Plight consisting of Sage's Gesture, Sage's Journey and Sage's Orbit. This was dropped in Hardcore in a VotA run. Based on mats versus possible outcomes, I doubt I'll try any since they're rather expensive to craft and the set bonus is beyond lacklustre. Might call it pitifuly inadequate instead.
So it appears that if you're lucky, you might expect 1 plan every 1000+ hours.

Most of them are garbage though. Unless you are finding them in hardcore most plans have been beat out by the newer legendaries, and some of them are still terrible.
