We do not support that. /etc/ is the place for configuration on Linux,
and if you make that immutable you basically turn off the ability to
configure things at runtime. Which is totally OK to do of course, but
if this is the mode you pick you shouldn't be surprised that this is
what you get.

This is not configurable, the path /etc/locale.conf is considered
API. It's not a hidden backend or so, but a primary interface to this
