as I know, skeletons only apply on new home directories, and for
example if an existing user wants to switch from XFCE to LXQt desktop,
related skeleton files wont be applied on their home directory.

as I understand from the documents, `account-service-type` extension
returns a list of `user-account` and `user-group` records. I also
didn't find any reference related to ad skeletons to `user-account`.

a solution that I was thinking of was to add these configurations, to
the related `$XDG_CONFIG_DIRS` path in system profile located in
`/run/current-system/profile/etc/xdg/...` just don't know which service
extension I should extend for this purpose.
