    Yes, they are just part of the standard c library, in linux most people use the gnu standard c library, glibc. If you want to look into it or its source you can look here: http://www.gnu.org/software/libc/libc.html
    If you look into your libraries, you should find something like this libc.so. That is the library that contains all of the standard c functions.
