I edit ~/.xsessionrc to have a single line:

Which program reads ~/.xsessionrc and how did you learn about it?
Which man page describes it?  Does its existence merely "add on" to some
system-wide default script, or does it fully replace a system-wide script?

Apparently, this is the "New Method" as detailed in the Debian Reference Manual: https://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/debian-reference/ch07.en.html#_customizing_the_x_session_new_method

Which makes X sessions include the same profile as standard login

Bash's initialization is a bit more complex than that.  It will look
for three different files (.bash_profile or .bash_login or .profile),
in that order, and uses the first one it finds.  I'd imagine zsh does
something similar, though I don't use zsh.  For pure POSIX sh or ksh,
you would be correct.

For more information, please reread.
