That doesn't necessarily mean anything, but Textures 2.2.0a (the  
alpha OS X version) uses

~/Library/Application Support/Formats
~/Library/Application Support/Inputs
~/Library/Application Support/Metrics

Preferring system-wide setups, I tried also

/Library/Application Support/Formats
/Library/Application Support/Inputs
/Library/Application Support/Metrics

and it does work too.
