They're in mediawiki/maintenance, and as the README says you have to
copy the SMW maintenance files there or make them symlinks in that

You might be able to instead copy the MediaWiki maintenance
infrastructure back into the SMW maintenance directory and run from
there; I tried it a while ago and couldn't get it to work.
If you're restricted to running things through a web interface you'll
probably have other issues. I think someone on this mailing list made a
version of SMW_refreshData.php that worked as a web page.

`svn update` will preserve your local changes, possibly adding '>>>>'
around lines with conflicting changes. But you probably want to do `svn
switch` to the REL_1_1_2 tag first if you don't want the absolute latest
