The data is not stored in environment variables but as property in 
X11. For the dispwin tool the configuration is set in 
~/.config/color.jcnf. My data is set as:

  "devices": {
    "display": {
      "1": {
      "2": {
        "NAME": ":0.0",

If I load color profile (dispwin -L) the one for my current display is 
loaded (here dell-L.icc) the eizo.icc I used with my old monitor.

I don't know xcalib, but it must do something similar.
