It depends on the program, theres no one location.

Common places are /bin , /sbin , /opt , /usr/bin , /usr/local/bin .

Do "whereis [programname]" and it will tell you where the program is.

The way I understand it the package manager runs a shell script that checks for conflicts and if there are non it copies the components of the program to their respective directories.
