Did you also look under ~/Library/Preferences?

It's ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.versioner.perl.plist

Here's how you prove it, and any other questions like this:

1/ In one Terminal window, run `sudo filebyproc.d | grep -i plist`
2/ In another Terminal window, run the defaults command in question
3/ In the original window, hit ctrl-C to cancel, then examine the results.

Tweak the grep filter as needed and you can use this trick to isolate
all kinds of weird "what file is that damned thing looking at" type

Thank you for this tip -- 'filebyproc.d' is a new one to me. One learns something everyday. Could be really useful, as you say, to find out who's doing what to whom.

I am still bothered about putting a 'Prefer-32-bit plist' on someone else's computer (via the installer) just for the sake of Mac::Processes. What if the owner prefers 64 bit...?
