SDE credentials in MXD files

So here's the situation; I work with several other GIS professionals and we all need to access the same mxd files. One person forgot her sde password and the administrators; instead of unlocking her account, gave her a new password. So whenever someone opens an mxd file with her old credentials it locks her out of sde and an administrator needs to unlock it for her.

 

 

My question is: is someone else's sde credentials always stored in the mxd file or are they stored locally when the mxd file is opened?
