There is an internal battery which maintains the clock and settings memory. These are usually lithium cells such as are found in watches, though they will have solder tabs to connect to the circuit board. When this cell expires, all the memory is lost when changing batteries. Normally, it is a factory service replacement item.

The service life of these cells is usually 5-10 years, and the manufacturers seem to have decided that your camera will be oblolete by then, anyway, so they generally price replacement high enough that most people will just buy a new camera.
