What you miss is what happens when the user selects a file. In that case T3
creates a copy of it in /uploads/ext-name and uses this copy instead of the
original file. If you look there you will see the copy.

So when a user selects a file, the database returns a file name only,
because the directory is given by the rule /uploads/ext.-name.
