Argh, it kind of does, but it kind of doesn't. This is my tetex/gwTeX result:
% kpsewhich --engine=pdfetex cont-en.fmt
/usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.local/web2c/pdfetex/cont-en.fmt
% kpsewhich --engine=xetex cont-en.fmt
/usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.local/web2c/xetex/cont-en.fmt

Which is pretty much right!

But it sounds like you're running into the weird inconsistency I found
when I was trying to get the engine paths right for xetex. It worked, but
didn't, and I felt clueless and frustrated.

Maddening.
