The paths are absolutes, but, absolutes to your secure and unsecure url.
That values (secure and unsecure url) are sotred into the core_config_data table.
You can change that values, to use another domain, or another folder into one domain.
After that, your page urls are concatenated to your secure or unsecure url.
You don’t have to worry about that issue.
