It does. There is a RunRev plugins folder next to the executable, which 
on Macs is inside the app bundle. That's supposed to be reserved for 
LiveCode use, and us peons aren't supposed to put own own stuff in it. 
Instead, we put our stuff out in left field somewhere (Documents, by 
default) and point Preferences at it. If plugins need to be updated, 
then the installer will swap out the ones in RR's folder. Ours remain 
pristine and pure. Except for when they crash. :)
