Yes, he certainly means that: it uses the *first* one it finds.  
Actually, I guess as far as it finds one, it stops searching.

BTW, if you want another (ordinary) user's opinion: With ~/Library/ 
texmf and /usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.local and given the way both  
TeX and i-Installer deal with them, I can't see the need for an  
additional tree. I failed to understand your reasons (perhaps I  
missed some message at the start of the thread, perhaps they were too  
technical for me).
