Not 100% sure I understood your question, but if you ask where you probably got the command winscppasswd from, then I think you can look at:

Yes, you did install winscppasswd - and your winscp is configured to store settings in the .ini file, that's why you can't find them in the registry.

Storing passwords in a file or registry is never a good idea. Better to use SSH keys with a password to protect the key. You can use putty agent (pagent) to load the SSH keys (typing the password once) on startup, then you can SSH keys.
