Can anyone explain how does PRPC interpret "file://web:/" or "file://default:/" ?

these are some of the file storage paths. the Pega storage system has 6 of them. by default, these paths point to the path set by "initialization/explicittempdir" environment variable, unless you define them separately.
the paths defined for these 6 classes will become the root path for the subsequent relative paths. in your example "StaticContent/global/ServiceExport" is a relative path for whatever root path is set for "file://web:" storage class
you can explicitly define them by setting the following "storage/class/..." env variables in prconfig.xml. there are 6 types of storage paths, which you can define them as follows,
Note: '/rootpath' suffix is only for filesystem storage. for database storage, you need corresponding '/datasource', '/username' and '/password' setting for all 6 of the storage classes
for ex. in prconfig.xml, setting the following will place all resources having "file://llc:/" url to "C:\TEMP\LLC" directory.
you configure the "initialization/explicittempdir" resource location and map to a physical location as part of PRPC installation steps. for ex, for tomcat setup, you need to set the following in tomcat's context.xml.
