If you create workflows using SharePoint designer everything will be stored in the content database.

I agree above Answer and SharePoint designer workflows we can check in Designer having wfpub in that folder having all .xsn,xoml and rules files. each design workflow having a separate folder.

path is : Open Designer --> All files (left hand side) --> wfpub --> click and check
