Despite having changed the folder preferences, a MuseScore4 folder containing an empty Scores folder is created each time on startup.

Environment: Linux (Fedora 36)
Version: MuseScore 4 Alpha 2 (AppImage)

Steps to reproduce:
1. Download MuseScore
2. Run the AppImage
3. Change the folder preferences
4. Delete the MuseScore4 folder created during the first startup
5. Close and open MuseScore again
6. Notice that a MuseScore4 folder was created in the default location

Update: Tested it and the same issue happens on the nightly build. Though in that case it's also worth noting that the Scores entry in folder preferences was blank by default (while the other folder options were filled in with the default location).
