What should I do if I want to find the path to the executable for the node spawner in the package controller_manager ?

bryant@bryant:~$ roscd controller_manager        
bryant@bryant:/opt/ros/kinetic/share/controller_manager$ ls
cmake  package.xml

You may want to look at how rosrun finds executables. Be warned, it's a bit of a mess to keep compatibility with rosbuild packages:

And just to avoid an xy-problem: what is it that you're actually trying to do?
