I tested with:

/tmp/h1/.emacs:
    (setenv "HOME" "/tmp/h2/")
    (setq savehist-file "/tmp/h1/.emacs-history")
    (load "~/.emacs")
    (setenv "HOME" "/tmp/h1/")

/tmp/h2/.emacs:
    (setq foo 99)


HOME=/tmp/h1 emacs-25.1
M-x package-initialize

and could not reproduce any problem.
The package lines get added to /tmp/h1/.emacs, once only.

If you don't feel like debugging further, you could just add a
commented out package-initialize line to /root/.emacs.
Somehow I don't think your problem is a common one. :)
