Yes, they are in /usr/local/samba/private/sam.ldb.

e.g. try:

ldbsearch -H /usr/local/samba/private/sam.ldb '(objectClass=user)'

You can also access the information via LDAP over the network.  e.g.:

$ sudo apt-get install ldap-utils libsasl2-modules-gssapi-heimdal
$ kinit administrator
$ ldapsearch -h localhost -Y GSSAPI '(objectClass=user)' cn
