That is not a proper way to do it. It will be rewritten at updates anyway. Create your own theme inside your home directory.

Inside it you should have the index.theme file, with this description:

[Sound Theme]
Comment="whatever description you want for it"


Inside the directory stereo you place your custom *.oga files or whatever format… Then open Tweaks and select YourSoundThemeName.
In order to hear feedback sounds you have to enable it with this commands from terminal:

dconf write /org/gnome/desktop/sound/event-sounds "true"


dconf write /org/gnome/desktop/sound/input-feedback-sounds "true"

If you want to disable feedback sounds all together, run:

dconf write /org/gnome/desktop/sound/event-sounds "false"
dconf write /org/gnome/desktop/sound/input-feedback-sounds "false"
