If you want to configure where a given device will be mounted, you can
simply add a line for it to /etc/fstab , as has been the case for eons.
udisks respects /etc/fstab ; if a device is listed there, then when
udisks comes to mount it, it'll mount it in the location specified.

You can even configure this graphically via GNOME's Disks app; click a
partition / volume, click the 'gears' (options) icon for it, select Edit
Mount Options..., and change Mount Point to whatever you like. Whatever
mount point you set will be remembered. (I don't remember if it writes
the setting out to /etc/fstab or somewhere else).
