I don't know what you mean. You can get the list of files included in
an installed package with dpkg -L. You can get the list of files for
an arbitrary package (not necessary installed) using p.d.o (presently
unavailable), apt-file, or just by zgrepping the Contents.gz file.
Installed packages aren't guaranteed to have .debs anywhere on the
hard drive, although apt does keep a cache:
