It doesn't. And the runtime results also does not depend on anything in
a specific absolute location, which makes the whole TeX install
relocatable. The way to do this is to have a texmf.cnf two directories
up from the binaries. That one is always found first and there you can
set the values for locations to whatever you want.
This is how I can ship a relocatable precompiled TeX install based on
TL for Mac OS X.
