Using QGIS 3.4.0, I have created a new custom color ramp, using:

Settings > Style Manager > Color ramp > green plus sign

I saved the new color ramp as follows:

The color ramp works just fine.

Out of curiosity, I searched the entire local drive for the new ramp, using the text string (test_example). Nothing returned.

So, where are these new ramps stored, i.e. folder and file name?

Interesting... I opened my Profiles | default folder and found symbology-style.db (an SQLite file).

It contained colorramp Table.

My colorramp table has additional colors such as Inferno, Magma, etc. (They came from Viridis colorramp). So your added test_example would be found here, too.
