Plugin installation folder

If I understand well, the recommended location for plugin installation is now C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\Plug-Ins\CC. However, plugin installers are supposed to look at the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Adobe\Photoshop\<version> | PluginPath registry value in order to determine in which folder the plugin should be installed. And this value is still pointing to the "old" location (C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CC <year>\Plug-Ins\), even for the latest PS CC versions. So many plugin developers continue to install in the old location.

Any official instructions anywhere ?
