 From /Library/teTeX/share/texmf.gwtex/README.texmf.gwtex.txt:

3. /usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.local is the local texmf tree, this is
maintained by the local TeX administrator. It is also the VARTEXMF  
tree that
is handled in a special way by texconfig, e.g. formats and changes  
are stored
here. A package like CM-Super installs here by default so it will  
survive a
reinstall/upgrade of either TeX Programs or TeX Foundation i-packages.
