Where are custom types stored? Because when a custom type is created, in wp_posts, the post type is set to the <new_custom_post_type>. But where are the details of the new custom post type stored??

The details of custom post types aren't stored anywhere, they're loaded at runtime with each request via register_post_type calls.
