The correct location, IMO, is /usr/lib/udev/rules.d/  
#cat /usr/lib/udev/rules.d/60-vboxguest.rules 

ACTION=="add", KERNEL=="vboxguest", SUBSYSTEM=="misc", OWNER="root",
ACTION=="add", KERNEL=="vboxuser", SUBSYSTEM=="misc", OWNER="root",

I just have this in 60-vboxguest.rules , is for guest system isn't it
