I noticed that when I save page in Visual editor. Wordpress remembers it the next time I edit the page even if I clear all my browser cookies and cache.

In what section of the WordPress database does this setting is saved? I searched for it and couldn't found it.

WordPress stores this option as user meta ({$wpdb->prefix}user-settings).

You can use get_user_setting('editor', 'tinymce') to get it's value (editor is setting name, and tinymce is default value).
