The rear brakes should be drums. If you're the original owner and sprung for 4 wheel ABS, they could be discs, but a quick look behind the wheel should help. If you see a shiny surface and a caliper on one side, they're discs. If you don't, they're drums. You should be able to locate parts for them fairly easily. Keep in mind that the Taurus and Sable are the same chassis.

Are the rear brakes in a Mercury Sable self adjusting?

Yes - Provided that the self adjusters have not seized from rust. That is quite common with drum brakes. Some year Sables have rear disc brakes. Those self adjust also. The Taurus /Sable rear disc adjusters are just as bad at seizing from rust as the drum adjusters. -On occasion I've even had to remove them and fit a whole new adjuster.
