Where do the docs mention that location?

The default location for the config file on CentOS should be

It's the other way round. As the docs say
When available disk space falls below this limit, flow control is triggered.
i.e. you must have *at least* that much disk space available on the 
partition in which RabbitMQ is storing data. So, if you are seeing 
rabbit block due to a disk space alarm then you must *lower* the limit 
(which will make rabbit more fragile in general, but may be ok in your 
case), or increase the partition size, or configure rabbit to put the 
data on a different, bigger partition.
