When writing dissectors, most of the Wireshark internal structures, like tvbuff's, should be treated as opaque data types, so you really don't need to know or care about the internals, as the API provides all the accessor functions you need. However, if you want to learn about the internals anyway, then the epan/tvbuff-int.h file is probably the best place to look.
