A Handy function

If you like learning about internals use the undocumented function to get the FileID:PageID of your table rows and use that in DBCC PAGE.


SELECT sys.fn_PhysLocFormatter (%%physloc%%)
AS RID, *
FROM Person.EmailAddress;

Output:

RID
(1:3392:0)
(1:3392:1)
(1:3392:2)

Now set your trace flag on and read the contents of DBCC PAGE to satisfy your curiosity.

Enjoy.
