How can I tell to oS 12.2 to use /media to mount hotplugged devices?
When I plug a pendrive or an usb disk, it is mounted in
/run/media/<user> and not in /media as happens in oS 12.1.


When I mount an USB device it shows up in /media on my oS 12.2, and has
never ever mounted anywhere else.

Same here.

And so the question arises: what are those people claiming otherwise running
to claim what they claim?

I have looked for this and the cause seems to be related to udisks1/2:
udisks1 (still used by KDE) mounts in /media; udisks2 (used by GNOME,
xfce, and lxde) mounts in /run/media/<user>
