When adding external SVG symbols in "SVG paths" in general options, if different paths have different SVG files/symbols that have the same file name then the SVG in the first listed path is always used.

I add also that always the default path of svg of qgis is used firstly.
This is a no good choose because
If I add another path to reach my svg if they has the same name of an svg in default path.
My svg file never will be used.
I figure qgis now is using this approach:
n. 1) /--default-path svg of qgis/
n. 2) first path added from an user
n. 3) second path added from an user.
QGIS start searching on N.1 .If not found go to N. 2 , if not found go to N. 3.
Instead more affordable is to use a list inverse.
Start to test non n. 3) if not found pass to test on N. 2 if not found pass to test on N.1 (the default-path)
This is more feasible and more easy to manage for an user.
