This is what I found:

Fix order of directories in BOOST_BUILD_PATH.

In 'boost-build', add the directory given as argument *after* existing
directories. So, if user set in environment
BOOST_BUILD_PATH=/home/custom_bb_files, then files from that directory
will be loaded before any stock files.

In particular, this fixes searching of user-config.jam in environmental

To be honest, I have no idea what "stock files" is.
But perhaps you remember?
