WINEDLLPATH and /usr/lib/wine

I am wanting to direct wine to launch a specific APP.exe.so program by
using WINEDLLPATH during the development of APP.exe.
Unfortunately (and undocumented-ely if you know what I mean) WINEDLLPATH
is superseded by /usr/lib/wine. So if /usr/lib/wine/APP.exe.so exists,
WINEDLLPATH will find that one instead of the one I am trying to target.
So, if these files exist:
Then this command...
WINEDLLPATH=MY_DIR wine APP.exe
... will start /usr/lib/wine/APP.exe.so and not /MY_DIR/APP.exe.so.
Is this on purpose? It doesn't seem right at first glance. I would
assume that WINEDLLPATH would take precedence. Otherwise what purpose
would it serve?
Thanks for tips or background,
