OK, just checking.

The action appears to be in the file /etc/profile.d/lang.sh, where there
is a check for $HOME/.i18n. If this exists it's sourced, except that
$LANG is preserved. Then there's a bunch of other special cases which
you would need to pore over. Of course if the user doesn't have a
$HOME/.i18n file it just sets some standard defaults.

I don't know if any of this explains what you're seeing.
