The exact set of init/dot files that are sourced when you start a shell
depends on quite a few factors, but I think there are no circumstances that
would source `~/.profile` without _first_ sourcing `/etc/profile`, since
`/etc/profile` is always sourced by bash when bash is invoked as a login

This is all covered in extensive detail in, if you'd like to read up on it.
