Yes, back up will go to the location specified in the channel, but there can be more than one channel configured

 If you have multiple channels allocated, then check what all are configured in RMAN  by typing this command

RMAN > show all;

this will list you out all the parameters where in you can check how many channels are configured,

check output of show all command after you run your command and check for these words

CONFIGURE CHANNEL DEVICE TYPE, you can verify the output going to the location after setting the parameter

We can also override these setting by manually allocating the channels  and defining the new locations in the backup script as show below

RUN
{
  ALLOCATE CHANNEL ch1 DEVICE TYPE DISK FORMAT = '/backup/BKP_%U';
  backup database plus archivelog delete input;

}
