Only the values without surrounding quotes are set (LC_COLLATE=POSIX).
The rest are derived values:

$ (unset LANG; LC_COLLATE=POSIX locale; echo ---; env|grep LC_ ) 
LANG=
LC_CTYPE="POSIX"
LC_NUMERIC="POSIX"
LC_TIME="POSIX"
LC_COLLATE=POSIX
LC_MONETARY="POSIX"
LC_MESSAGES="POSIX"
LC_PAPER="POSIX"
LC_NAME="POSIX"
LC_ADDRESS="POSIX"
LC_TELEPHONE="POSIX"
LC_MEASUREMENT="POSIX"
LC_IDENTIFICATION="POSIX"
LC_ALL=

Emacs doesn't care about `GDM_LANG'.  See "Important settings" after
