"I think it stores in ~/.config/google-chrome or ~/.config/chromium. Though i have it inside the first location!
Check for the Default folder under this location, more specifically."

"I couldn't find at all on internet where the chromium data folder is supposed to be. I found some locations like ~/.config/google-chrome or ~/.config/chromium but that wasn't it for me.
I couldn't find this in the settings either... But I found a way:

On your chrome/chromium go to chrome://extensions in the URL bar
Pick any extension (or the one you're trying to find)
Then copy the extension id from one of those locations

Open a terminal and run find ~/ -type d -name ""id-of-the-extension-here""

In my case it was in ~/snap/chromium/common/chromium/Default/Extensions/"
