This if fmtutil/mktexfmt which rightly writes to TEXMFVAR (or
TEXMFSYSVAR if you use the -sys (or --sys) switch).
If you run the xetex -ini (or --ini) manually, you get the format in the
current working directory.
You might want to read the man page (yes, as in "man page") of fmtutil.
There, the switch
-fmtdir (or --fmtdir)
is mentioned, which describes where the format is saved.
