No, ODF has no hidden additional information for the image itself. The user can
put information into the general <svg:desc> element of the containing
<draw:frame> element.

It is possible to store information in a <meta:user-defined> element in the
<office:meta> element. In the UI those are in File > Properties, tab 'Custom
Properties'. The user is free in the name (key) of such property, only that it
has to be unique. The content (value) can be arbitrary text. If a user take the
image name as key and the URL as value, he can save the information together
with the document.

Both suggestion needs explicit actions by the user. I would not do such things
automatically. But it sounds like a task for a script, which can be installed
as extension.
