Just to be sure: have you only noticed this variable or have you sourced
the new .guix-profile/etc/profile where it should be included?

Not 100% sure what you mean but the following is in the output of "env" : NM_VPN_PLUGIN_DIR=/gnu/store/1k98ck98lirfw9974qvz84xikcsjc67f-network-manager-openvpn-1.8.0/lib/NetworkManager/VPN

I have opened a bug about this a while ago (OpenVPN and the (not yet merged?)
VPNC plugins are affected. It's annoying prevents me from accessing my university
intranet via VPN for some things from home.
Maybe it was just an email so far, I can not find a bug ticket for this.

If I can help by providing any more logs or something I'd happy to do that.

Thanks for the additional issue, I didn't look into Nix so far.
