I think it was ~/pd-externals, at least that’s what I still use.

I agree that something in the ~/Documents would be more standard than anything in ~/Library as that has been a hidden folder in Finder since OS X 10.7 or so as is not meant to be directly user-accessible. The preferences file, OTOH, should stay as that uses the same format & location that most macOS apps use.
