Summary and Info:

pacman.conf has a [custom] example commented:

# An example of a custom package repository. See the pacman manpage for
# tips on creating your own repositories.
#SigLevel = Optional TrustAll
#Server = file:///home/custompkgs

makepkg.conf has PKGDEST commented as:

#-- Destination: specify a fixed directory where all packages will be placed

It's natural if both examples would match. I'd suggest file:///home/packages in pacman.conf, as the custom nature is already implied by the [custom] name.
