For my requirement, I had to change the parent menu for Location from Configuration to Inventory Control at Warehouse section

<menuitem action="action_location_form" id="menu_action_location_form" groups="stock.group_locations" parent="menu_stock_configuration" sequence="5"/>


<menuitem action="stock.action_location_form" id="stock.menu_action_location_form" groups="stock.group_locations,stock.group_stock_user"  parent="stock.menu_stock_inventory_control" sequence="5"/>

I used the second xml code in my custom module to change menu requirements.

I hope this is useful for manipulating menu items from other modules by CUSTOM modules
