Actually, they are not.

Even for internal accounts, the passwords are not stored.  If the server/DC is hooked up to an external user directory, they may be stored there (if it's a primitive one that doesn't do security properly)

Jira's internal user directory ("embedded crowd") stores only password hashes, not passwords.

Only one password might be found in a server/DC system files or database - if the database is configured with basic authentication, then the database user and password will be stored as plain text in <jira home>/dbconfig.xml

For Server and Data Center, passwords are stored in the Jira database.

For Cloud, you'll have to ask Atlassian where passwords are stored for Atlassian accounts.
