Some time ago I asked for methods to ask a TL installation as to where the texmf-var and texmf-config folders are

The suggestion I got was to use

kpsewhich -var-value TEXMFVAR
kpsewhich -var-value TEXMFCONFIG

Now I've tested those, and was a bit surprised by the answer


and not the expected


How do it to give me the later?
