Upon set up of a replication, a couple of tables gets created
inside the distribution database.

Is there a way to store these tables in a different place, for
example in a separate database?

Background: I have to write a routine that copies the same database
into another one, but I do not want to copy these replication tables
together with the actual data.

You can name that database whatever you want. Drop your distributor and then set it up again.

I don't see why you'd want to do this though. These aren't your tables in there. These tables are for replication purposes only.
