Launch Services uses a central database. You can dump it in Terminal with lsregister. You cannot, however, manually edit bindings of UTI and extension, as far as I know.

As I've written extensively, this nondeterministic behavior is expected when you have multiple applications declaring a different UTI for TeX files. Apple's system just falls over and does unpredictable things.
