That should be ~root/.guix-profile/lib/locale (note the singular).

This directory actually comes pre-populated with a small subset of UTF-8
locales when using the binary installation method like the script does,
so it's odd if you don't find anything there.

Which distribution are you on, and how do you become root?  Is the $HOME
variable set to root's home directory when you are in a root shell?

To figure out where the package gets installed, try running this

find /var/guix/profiles -name sv_SE.utf8 -type d
