Yes, Gnucash does store the AqBanking uid in the gnucash file itself.
Gnucash files are usually in gzipped XML format, hence you can simply
open it for instance with zless and search (hit '/') for the hbci slots
(<slot:key>hbci</slot:key>) and the enclosed other elements holding the
actual data.

I have no strong opinion about it, but probably Gnucash should store the
account number and the bank code only to avoid such 'problems'.

@Christian, do you remember why the AqBanking uid is stored by earlier
Gnucash versions (those you were involved in)?
