Possible sources of environment variables

Hello! I have a small problem that’s a bit odd, perhaps. I have some 
environment variables defined to include Guix-related paths, but I have no 
idea where they’re being defined.

I was sourcing the ‘~/.guix-profile/etc/profile’ file from my ‘~/.profile’, 
but after I commented that part of my ‘~/.profile’ out, I’m still getting the 
Guix-related paths in $GDK_PIXBUF_MODULE_FILE, $PATH, and $XDG_DATA_DIRS (all 
of which are defined in the Guix profile file), but also in $INFOPATH (which 
is not in the Guix profile file). I don’t remember ever defining these 
variables anywhere; sourcing the Guix profile from my shell profile is all 
that I recall ever doing.

I do define some other Guix-related variables manually, but all of those 
concern locales or certificates for various programs. I wish to undo the other 
paths being set by/for Guix, to make my environment temporarily unaware of 
Guix even being installed, for troubleshooting purposes, but I can’t find out 

I’m running Guix as a supplementary package manager on OpenSUSE 15.4, with KDE 
as my desktop environment. I suppose this might not be Guix at fault, but just 
me overlooking something while setting it up, or the host system doing 
something I’m not familiar with, but perhaps someone has had a similar 
experience? Any clues would be much appreciated!

Best of wishes
