I did not change the user setting, so I believe that it is the default,
~/.blender. The reason the list turned out the way it did was because on my
system, ~/.blender did not exist, so it fell back to /usr/bin/.blender, and
then finally /usr/bin/release/scripts (in case the user ran the executable
from the source directory). With the directory created, blender does check
the ~/.blender/scripts directory, along with
~/.blender/scripts/bpymodules, but does not bother checking anything in

However, this is not the point I was trying to make. There still should be
a way to specify a system directory that should also be checked.
