are sharepoint server documents stored on the server itself in the raw format. For example if someone uploads a PDF into SharePoint, does that reside as an accessible PDF on the server itself? I need to check if that is the case the permissions on the default directory? This is for SharePoint server 2013.

All SharePoint content is stored in the content database(s). The content is not accessible as a file in the file system.

Content permissions is handled via the browser interface normally.

Good luck...
