At that point, you can just enter f:\nvda (if your USB disk was on drive F:), or whatever, and NVDA would be installed to that folder.Yes, you could. You could also activate the browse button and navigate to a chosen folder.
But it's blank by default, and a great many people browse to the drive they want to use, and that's it. There are lots of "browse" options in cases like this that would automatically post-pend the NVDA part, which a user would need to remove if they didn't want that folder.
People (and I include myself) are lazy and will most often take what the software does after a minimum of picking. There are other factors involved, too. Were the NVDA "create portable" always to create a dedicated NVDA folder on the destination device (even if that device were an existing folder) this would be a moot point.
I know what I observe happening "in the wild" and I know it won't likely change. In this case a simple programming change could alleviate the issue. It's all a matter of what one wants, and at least mentioning it.
