Well, I would solve all these in the following way:

GNOME never sets the env variable at all, nor is there GUI for it. If
unset, they default to the hardcoded directory. If you set them somehow,
then GNOME will attempt to use your override dir. If nobody uses the
feature, it will probably bitrot and not work, but if someone seriously
cares they will be able to go through and find the issues and file/fix
