Almost everything is stored in the sidecars. The only things missing are 
changed times set with the geolocation module and image groups.

There is however an easier way: Move the files in your file manager, then in 
darktable DON'T remove them but set the collect module to the folder mode and 
right click the marked entries in the tree to point darktable to their new 
location. If you are moving complete folder hierarchies it's enough to do that 
for the root node of the tree. Better make a backup of your database first, 
just in case. You can find that in ~/.config/darktable/.
