The database contains all pragmas commands you had executed. 
Why keep storing in a configuration file, since it´s not a database server?
Please keep in mind that SQlite is a general purpose 'embedded' database
not a DBA-managed database server.
Also WHY SQlite should have a configuration file? 
What kind of configuration this file will hold?
Also, SQlite has a concept of VFS (Virtual File System), SQlite does not
any file direct without this interface (you can wrap direct memory access, 
another kind of custom storage, etc).
I really can´t see what a configuration file will help (?) SQlite.

But the question is who the target audience for SQLite is? Is it
software developers or application users?  If programmers can customize
SQLite by changing source code, then they are probably smart enough to
change property files.
I am not complaining about the lack of a config file, just wondering why

Not only is it a feature, it is a blessing.  One of the most endearing 
features of Sqlite is that one file encapsulates everything.  The 
simplicity is no accident but rather the reward of plenty of design 

I can attest from experience to the improvement in software reliability 
achieved by removing .ini files and similar configuration add-ons.  For 
example support call rates drop enormously.
