It is really .bash_profile in CentOS and Fedora,
Not at all. It depends entirely on the user's login shell. It has
nothing to do with the distro.
.bash_profile is read only by bash.
.profile is read by bash, but also by the original Bourne shell,
and probably others. (Logically, all Bourne-compatible shells should
read it, but since when does logic mean anything ...)
There are similar considerations for .bashrc, which is bash-specific.
(There is no equivalent "generic" file.)
As already mentioned, this is not a TeX Live topic ... --karl
