I went thru my home dirctory and couldn't find the configuration/settings file. And indeed, the settings are not saved. What am I missing?

Code:
 ~ $ emerge -pv blueman

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

Blueman is an interface to the Bluetooth service. Changes related to Bluez made by Blueman are saved in /var/lib/bluetooth.

So I have to run blueman as root? I want to save incoming files into my home, and this setting should be saved in my home?

You have to activate the appropriate plugins in Blueman. There are options in Blueman for what you accept as incoming files and where to save them. I do not use Bluetooth for files transfert. I cannot go more in detail unless I do it myself.

This is exactly the problem, I set these options and click on Apply, but when I open the plugin again they are back to None.

I have change the directory where to save the incoming files and check the option of sure sources and then apply. After close and open again the Blueman interface (even Exit Blueman and start it again) my changes are effective. It may be the USE flags settings of Bluez and Blueman and the groups your user is in that make your changes not validate. If it can help you, I give you my settings.

Code:
equery u bluez
[ Legend : U - final flag setting for installation]
[        : I - package is installed with flag     ]
[ Colors : set, unset                             ]
 * Found these USE flags for net-wireless/bluez-5.39:
 U I
 - - abi_x86_32                     : 32-bit (x86) libraries
 - - cups                           : Add support for CUPS (Common Unix Printing System)
 - - debug                          : Enable extra debug codepaths, like asserts and extra output. If you want to get meaningful backtraces see https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Project:Quality_Assurance/Backtraces
 - - deprecated                     : Build deprecated plugins
 - - doc                            : Add extra documentation (API, Javadoc, etc). It is recommended to enable per package instead of globally
 - - experimental                   : Build experimental plugins
 - - extra-tools                    : Install tools that upstream doesn't install on purpose by default. All this tools shouldn't be used. Then, please notify upstream about you still need them to let them know
                                      the situation.
 + + obex                           : Enable OBEX transfer support.
 - - python_single_target_python3_4 : Build for Python 3.4 only
 + + python_targets_python3_4       : Build with Python 3.4
 + + readline                       : Enable support for libreadline, a GNU line-editing library that almost everyone wants
 + + systemd                        : Enable use of systemd-specific libraries and features like socket activation or session tracking
 - - test                           : Workaround to pull in packages needed to run with FEATURES=test. Portage-2.1.2 handles this internally, so don't set it in make.conf/package.use anymore
 - - test-programs                  : Install tools for testing of various Bluetooth functions
 + + udev                           : Enable virtual/udev integration (device discovery, power and storage device support, etc)


Code:
equery u blueman
[ Legend : U - final flag setting for installation]
[        : I - package is installed with flag     ]
[ Colors : set, unset                             ]
 * Found these USE flags for net-wireless/blueman-2.0.4:
 U I
 - - appindicator                   : Enable usage of dev-libs/libappindicator to export menu options
 + + network                        : Add functionality to setup (host) PAN connections using either net-dns/dnsmasq or net-misc/dhcp
 + + nls                            : Add Native Language Support (using gettext - GNU locale utilities)
 + + policykit                      : Enable PolicyKit authentication support
 + + pulseaudio                     : Add support for PulseAudio sound server
 + + python_single_target_python2_7 : Build for Python 2.7 only
 - - python_single_target_python3_4 : Build for Python 3.4 only
 - - python_single_target_python3_5 : Build for Python 3.5 only
 + + python_targets_python2_7       : Build with Python 2.7
 + + python_targets_python3_4       : Build with Python 3.4
 - - python_targets_python3_5       : Build with Python 3.5
 + + thunar                         : Install the sendto-plugin for xfce-base/thunar


Code:
id
uid=1000(gnu) gid=1000(gnu) groupes=1000(gnu),6(disk),10(wheel),27(video),35(games),100(users),104(vboxusers),997(rtkit)
