Yes, all statistics are stored in the sysindexes table.
If you run this query, you may see that some of the rows represent auto
generated statistics. Their name in the first column will start with
_WA_sys, and they will have no rows and no data pages (dpages), but they
will have something non-null in the statblob column.
select name, object_name(id), rows, dpages, statblob
