Yes, by default all that information is only saved to the databases
("digikam4.db" and "thumbnails-digikam.db"). For better security I'd
recommend changing that setting to also write metadata to individual
images. You'll find the appropriate switches somewhere under
"preferences / metadata". Lost thumbnails can easily be regenerated.

I don't know anything about the database file format, but maybe
someone else can help you. In any case it is always a good idea to
backup all user data from time to time...
