bookfilename_UserData (p.e. Calibre Books ebook_catalog - calibre.epub_userData)
Most of these are about 6/700 bytes but annotated are must bigger and contain things like:
#point(/1/4/150/5:3)tinvullend voorspellend
Well that was a (dutch) annotation I made to the highlighted part of the page I also bookmarked.
So it might be that the annotations are stored within the metadata of the booklist.
If you delete the book, it will also disappear from this list ... and your annotation is gone.
I do believe you have found it! Awesome!!!!
If the next B&N update doesn't fix things with annotations and library organization, it's softroot time!!!

One question (and food for thought). Do you think the numbers in parentheses(/1/4/150/5:3) denote the chapter, section, page number, row and column (or some combination thereof) where you made the annotation? I guess the highlighted text itself doesn't show up in the file eh? (That would have been just too good ).
