To be precise, it has to do with configuring TeX. Think font maps,
paper size, etc. System-wide configuration settings are available to
all users. The ~/Library/texmf is available to each individual user.
The stuff in ~/Library/texmf (sty files etc) is still automatically
found when you run TeX. It is just that if you *configure* TeX using
the TeX i-Package it is ignored.
