Well, what do you have set for your background in Settings -> Personalization -> Background?

 

There are lots of themes that store background images as part of the theme.  On my machine the setting for Background is Slideshow and the album used is DesktopBackground (which is not an album I created and came with the theme).  When I search on "DesktopBackground" it shows the folder it's located in and that's under my AppData folders.
