Alternate script path ignores bl_app_templates_system

System Information

Broken: 2.80 0f5b53ba4dc

Short description of error
I'm using the alternate script path feature in preferences to manage scripts from a single place for multiple PCs.

I'm also using a custom startup blendfile to create a template for the New file menu

blender\2.80\scripts\startup\bl_app_templates_system\Custom_Template\startup.blend

Instead of adding the custom template to the main scripts path, I'd like to add it to the alternate scripts path following the same directory structure.

G:\My Drive\Software\scripts\startup\bl_app_templates_system\Custom_Template\startup.blend

However the custom template is not being picked up this way

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
Set an alternate script path in your preferences
Try to use it to add a custom template
