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.

Here's what filebyproc.d reported for me:

$ sudo filebyproc.d | grep -i plist
dtrace: script '/usr/bin/filebyproc.d' matched 3 probes
  1  18510                       open:entry backupd-helper
dtrace: error on enabled probe ID 1 (ID 19296:
syscall::open_nocancel:entry): invalid address (0x7fff5fc2dc7f) in
action #2 at DIF offset 24
  1  19296              open_nocancel:entry defaults
  1  18510                       open:entry mdworker

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
