In PCLinuxOS DIR_COLORS definitely is in /etc
What are you searching with? Do you have the Find Files/Folders
app in your distro? I put in *colors* and found the file. Or
open some GUI app like Dolphin and look in /etc or maybe /bin

I dug into this a little some years ago. The colors seem to
be standardized across Unix and Linux. White and black come
out differently if you have set your screen to white instead of
the standard black. But it's nice that something is standard
across so many Linux systems.

The colors of the audio jacks are also standardized, or close to it.
