The Win32 resource data is usually not referenced directly from the code; resource APIs such as FindResource, LoadResource and LockResource are used to access that data. You can use a resource editor to view or edit the resources (and then look for their IDs used in the above APIs). If you do want to figure out how the resources are stored on the binary level, check the PE/COFF specification.
