Not strange. UDF libraries are an extension of the database
engine; therefore, the database engine expects to recognise their location
as local relative to its own.

And while locating different parts of the engine on different hosts might
be possible with Windows shares, it is certainly not recommended. What
astonishes me is that you want this centralised functionality, yet are
using the embedded engine on each client.
