Poking around, colord stores its device and icc knowledge in sqlite dbs.
It is being used in-lieu of _ICC_PROFILE; I thought it took hints from
_ICC_PROFILE, but apparently not.  At least that's what I gather from
darktable's options, where you can select either _ICC_PROFILE or colord,
or both as a source.
