The profile is created automatically the first time “guix package -i” is
run. This happens reliably for me on Fedora, CentOS, and on GuixSD. If
this doesn’t happen Gentoo I suspect the Gentoo package to be defective
(e.g. setting invalid permissions on certain directories).

This is not important. Anything Guix creates will be in the store.
This includes all profile generations.
I suggest installing Guix using the official binary package. See this
page for the tarballs and the install instructions:
