These are not stored as separate files outside of the source tree. They're stored as resources within System.dll:

	// https://github.com/mono/mono/blob/master/mcs/class/System/System.Media/SystemSound.cs#L40
	resource = typeof (SystemSound).Assembly.GetManifestResourceStream (tag + ".wav");

They're available from the git repository:
