I was installing software using aptitude, which is similar to APT but has a more extensive user interface.

I was wondering if aptitude package manager also needs the repositories to install the software or it is pre located.

aptitude is just kind of an extended command-line frontend for apt. It uses the same functionality internally, so both manage the exactly same packaging system with the same available repositories.

There is no difference if you have installed a package through apt or aptitude.
