Ahem. What exactly is this? Does it return a path to a location where plugin data files can be written perhaps?

I guess, It returns the path where Cinema 4D stores the settings, In R11 it returns on Mac:
/Users/~myusername/Library/Preferences/MAXON/CINEMA 4D R11_XXX
This path is the c4d-settings dir.

It returns the writeable startup directory. This is the directory where all the user data is stored. It is important for plugin developers because since Vista and Leopard it is not allowed anymore to write files into the application folder.
