In /usr[/local]/share/doc, I guess.  At least I often look in the
non-local tree if I am searching for documentation.  I don't know how
popular /usr/local/... is, though.

Hm, on my system all of the packages which are installed only in a
single incarnation have directory names without version strings below

Is "syle" even a word?

Nevertheless they are Lisp files.  And the fact that they are internal
to AUCTeX does not qualify for putting them into an obscure place.
