I believe they are bitmaps. I don't have the proper tools for poking around in the resources of dlls installed on this pc, but my guess would be that the bitmaps are found in the resource section of system dlls like user32.dll, shell32.dll, comctl32.dll, comdlg32.dll, etc and maybe also win32k.sys.

Why do you ask?

I'm reasonably sure that borders are drawn. It would be a huge waste to store them as bitmaps and wouldn't scale well if at all. Other UI elements are actually stored as characters in fonts, take a look at wingdings and you'll see some of the characters rather closely resemble the actual UI element (in some themes anyway), others are actually at bitmaps.
