[Qtwebengine] where is QtWebengine looking for ICU resources?

To answer my question: It seems to use a hardcoded list of locations and finally looks in the prefix directory set in the qt.conf file that lies next to the executable, if present, e.g. 

Apparently the QTDIR environment variable is not part of this list, which I thought was a way of specifying the location. Would it be sensible to add it to the search list? Is there a third option (apart from adding the qt.conf file or the resources directory )?
