You mean startup.blend? That would be userdata located in $XDG_DATA_HOME/blender
This would also be the place to search for user scripts/themes/icons/locales

bookmarks, file-history, languages, bpython/menus would go in

release script/locale/theme/icon dirs would be searched in one of the
paths specified by $XDG_DATA_DIRS/blender
on my current Ubuntu installation, the search order would be:


But i guess you are right. Whether this makes sense or not is debatable. :)
