How does Zope 3 handle the same kind of setup?

In Zope2 containment is looked up through acquisition, that is,

And it depends on the acquisition chain.

In Zope3 it is explicit, through the ILocation interface.
That interface specifies the __parent__ attribute, which normaly
specifies only one parent, as the current implementations of that
interface in Zope3 persist this or use a wrapper.

I a currently running application I store references to objects in
multiple places without problems just fine. Just be careful to clean
up when the object gets deleted from it's canonical location (the
__parent__ object).

Right, objects are suppoed to only have one __parent__ in Zope 3. Whether or not that __parent__ is actually used to look up security settings is entirely the decision of the securitypolicy you're using. YOu can always plug in a different policy that acquires security declarations in a different way than wlaking up the __parent__ hierarchy.
