It is stored as a tag message.
git show <tag>
reveals the message.
Internally the tag is stored in
.git/refs/tags/<tag>. The content of the
<tag> file is a hash e.g.
b04be91f81ead931b81eb6db72b4ec1179d27d8a. This hash points to a zlib compressed packfile (which is why you couldn't find it via
grep), which is stored in
.git/objects/b0/4be91f81ead931b81eb6db72b4ec1179d27d8a. To show the contents of the file, you can use
git cat-file -p b04be91f81ead931b81eb6db72b4ec1179d27d8a
