This depends on how Emacs was configured.  The initial load-path is
defined in epath.h or can be overridden by an environment variable
EMACSLOADPATH. The invocation

emacs -Q -nw --batch --eval '(message "%s" load-path)'

tells you what the load-path is before running any startup scripts (if
subdirs.el is existing in any of the initial load-path directories, then
any subdirectories should have been expanded already).

The standard setup should be looking for

…/$VERSION/leim (maybe)

in that order (first version specific site-lisp, then site-lisp, then
the lisp that came with that installation of Emacs).  It could be
configured to use a different prefix for any site-lisp directories to
keep them separate from the installation.
