when probing for capabilities libvirt starts qemu with:

  -pidfile $libDir/qmp-XXXXX/qmp.pid

where $libDir points to /var/lib/libvirt/qemu for system wide daemon and
$XDG_CACHE_HOME/.cache/qemu/lib/ for session daemon. qemu process is run
under user:group configured from corresponding qemu.conf
(/etc/libvirt/qemu.conf for system daemon). The defaults are distro

Hope this gives you some hint. Although, libvirt should relabel its
internal paths on daemon startup, so this smells like a bug.
