Question

Do absolute paths always point to remote files or assets?

Answer

No. Absolute paths may also be used to point to local files or assets. However, when linking to local files it generally makes more sense to store files or assets within the project directory itself and then use a relative path to point to it. To learn more about paths, check out this StackOverflow thread.
