Usage of env and shutdown directories of KDE

I've confused about the path of the env and shutdown directories of KDE. In
startkde script, env directory is sourced like this:
libpath=`kde4-config --path lib | tr : '\n'`
for prefix in `echo "$libpath" | sed -n -e 's,/lib[^/]*/,/env/,p'`; do
for file in "$prefix"*.sh; do
test -r "$file" && . "$file"
So, if a distro uses "/usr/lib" as libdir, sh files are searched in ~/.kde and
/usr/env directories since kde4-config is called with "--path lib" parameters.
This is the case in Pardus and Kubuntu 10.10. openSUSE patched startkde to
source /usr/share/kde4/env directory. Same thing is valid for shutdown
Is this the intended behaviour? As far as I can see, there is no such entry in
kde4-config like "kde4-config --path env". That kind of path variable would be
