I have a user lookup field in SharePoint however the id given is the lookup id and not the userid.

Where is the lookup id referencing?

Looking at a link like this: Create list relationships by using unique and lookup columns.

It seems to suggest it is in another list however I can't find it.

Any ideas on how to find this list?

To find the lookup list, we can open the current list and go to List Settings->Columns->Find and click the lookup field, then we can find the lookup list is here.
