Would this help you?

    ┃ org-link-file-path-type is a variable defined in `org.el'.
    ┃ Its value is adaptive
    ┃ Documentation:
    ┃ How the path name in file links should be stored.
    ┃ Valid values are:
    ┃ relative  Relative to the current directory, i.e. the directory of the 
    ┃           into which the link is being inserted.
    ┃ absolute  Absolute path, if possible with ~ for home directory.
    ┃ noabbrev  Absolute path, no abbreviation of home directory.
    ┃ adaptive  Use relative path for files in the current directory and sub-
    ┃           directories of it.  For other files, use an absolute path.

Best regards,
