> It's stored in pyvenv.cfg.

Is it?

$ python3.8maint -m venv --prompt "foo bar" /tmp/venv
$ more /tmp/venv/pyvenv.cfg 
home = /home/vinay/projects/python/3.8
include-system-site-packages = false
version = 3.8.0
prompt = 'foo bar'

The source Python location is stored, but not, from what I can see, the venv path itself ... though of course that can be worked out from $PSScriptRoot or similar.

> How will this interact with EnvBuilder.install_scripts() (which explicitly states that it performs textual substitution)?

If there's nothing to substitute (because the script source has no placeholders), that won't constitute a problem, AFAIK.
