Root's login path is not fixed, but it built when root logs in. When
actually running as root, you may want automatic access to
directories that you do not want on the path for sudo users.
Depending on sudo is configured, they may not be able to access them
even if they know where they are, or you may want to limit access to
them to prevent an user from running them ascendantly.
