How can the label on the default document path be renamed [so it is NOT "My documents"]?

The Tools > Options > LibreOffice > Paths dialog enables the path for default location of documents to be set per user to something other than their [default] OS_USER_PROFILE_MY_DOCUMENTS location, and yet, illogically, the deliberately DIFFERENT location still ends up in LibreOffice labelled as "My documents"!

It can be removed from the left pane of the open/save dialog, but always reappears.

Especially when the default is NOT intended to be used, there needs to be a way of changing the label, so for example, it reads "Shared-wk-docs" or any other custom descriptor. Even a fixed "Custom file location" [when that is what it is] would be a big improvement on a confusing and incorrect "My documents" [when the location is deliberately elsewhere].

I have always managed my network so that all user documents are not even on the same drive as the OS & software, or user settings.

How can this be done?
