Those customization are stored in the database only:

- custom fields or model (ir.model ir.model.fields)
- custom views (ir.ui.view inherited)
- custom qweb reports (ir.ui.view type qweb)
- custom server action and rules (ir.actions.server and base.action.rules)
- custom web pages and controller (ir.ui.views and ir.action.server type web)

So they can be deployed using the the "odoo.py deploy" command that only allow 
to upload of xml and static files.
