I don't mess with these (much), but I will speculate, and see if I'm correct.

The locations of those "special" folders are hard-coded somewhere, or in some
..ini file that you haven't found yet.
The library paths have nothing to do with those.
What I think you want to do is create a central folder, and then in the place
where those folders are normally found, add a symbolic link that points to the
central folder.
In windows that might be a "shortcut" or something similar.
