For me, it works with a simple file like this on my Windows box:




    (insert "\n"
            (format "%S" (symbol-value reftex-docstruct-symbol)))

    %%% Local Variables:
    %%% mode: latex
    %%% TeX-master: t
    %%% End:

When I eval the form in the verbatim env, there is an entry like this:

    (bib "z:/path/to/test-bib-file.bib")

inserted in the buffer, hence RefTeX finds the file which is in a
different directory than the .tex file.

I don't use helm, so I can't tell.

Since the absolute path version doesn't work, you could try something
else provided by RefTeX.  Otherwise you have to find the culprit in your
setup.  I don't think this is a RefTeX issue.
