I have no .bash* files in /root.

I have not such user, only me and root, so i can't test.
I could create a new user just for test purpose, but i think it's not
useful, if it was a problem related to general config of my system,
other shell would not work, but it is not the case, M-x shell and eshell
can su ==> root without problems.

Yes, .bashrc and .bash_profile are sourced.
