Well, the most obvious answer would be that it didn't, and you are mistaken. :)

However, I'd say that depending on how exactly you changed those
records, you may have also changed the real places where the links to
your attached images live. Namely, the img tags in the post content
and in the postmeta table (for the attachments and links to the images
from there).
