Newer firmwares are also know to DELETE stuff from the main boot partition (such as /usr/local).

And of course, some hacks write to the main partition as well (to install startup scripts or keys).

But most changeds are made to /var/local or /mnt/us, as you said.
So in the end that means just about everywhere.... I took a look around my kindle and after an 30 minutes I gave up looking for it. I'm working on reverse engineering the website... I'll figure it out eventually .
