Bashrc, bash_profile, zshrc, ... Which one always executes?

Hey there,
I've just found out about this tool called xdg-ninja. It seems to deal with all the problems about file messes that I've been annoyed by, but I'm facing a problem: Where should I put the exports and aliases? The bashrc refuses to get executed, and so does the bashrc.
From my understanding, the bashrc is supposed to be executed when loading into my user, but that is not the case. I checked this by adding touch test to the end of it, but nothing happened.
I'm a little bit confused, since this issue has hunted me since I switched to garuda.

What do I need to do?
Thanks!

Since your shell is zsh, try putting it in your zshrc.

I expected such a thing, but I hoped I could make it shell-independent. Does this execute when I log into my user though? I don't want it to run when I open a zsh terminal.

EDIT: Oh well:

Tbh I only use zshrc and put everything there, and make all my terminals start as login shells. On a home desktop, I don't think you really need anything fancier than that.
