PDF Where does Acrobat reader save information about last view settings?

I usually check "Restore last view settings" in preferencs of Acrobat Reader. But I'm actually wondering where Acrobat Reader saves this information? In Windows Registry? In PDF file itself? On my local disk?

"I checked all appdata and ProgramData folders, but the info is not stored there. I opened

HKCU\Software\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\9.0\RememberedViews

There I found these folders - c1,c2,c3,...,c15
In them there were keys like ipageViewPageNum, ipageViewX, ipageViewY.
I guessed that ipageViewPageNum is the page number at which it opens the document and Adobe Reader saves view settings for 15 PDFs.

I opened many PDFs and scrolled to the same page number before closing Adobe Reader. I found out that the value of ipageViewPageNum changed to that page number everywhere. I also noticed that opening PDFs which were not the 15 most recent opened at the first page. This means my guess was right."
