They are referred to by a profile. You can see the full list of your
user's profiles with `guix package --list-generations`. Other users will
have their own profiles.

You can learn more about how to work with these profiles with `guix
package --help` and also in the manual, 3.2 Invoking guix package.

Thank you

There are only 2 profiles on this machine: mine and root's profile

As for mine, I eliminated ALL previous generations and emacs-cider is not installed in the current one

As for root's profile:

$ guix package -p root --list-installed

returns nothing

$ guix package -p root --list-generations
guix package: error: profile 'root' does not exist

So which profile is pointing to those things ?
