No, the current code uses:

    $TEST_OUTPUT_DIRECTORY/$root/trash\ directory.tXXXX

where we don't prepend $TEST_OUTPUT_DIRECTORY/ if $root is absolute.

I think the current behaviour is fine and the two options complement
each other.

TEST_OUTPUT_DIRECTORY is something you set once and forget about which
says "all of the test output should go over here", whereas --root is
passed to a specific test and says "put your output here" but does not
affect the result aggregation which is not specific to that test.

Note that setting TEST_OUTPUT_DIRECTORY in config.mak affects all tests
no matter how you run them (via make or as ./tXXXX-yyyy.sh) whereas
setting --root=... in GIT_TEST_OPTS only affect tests run via make.
