Other than through a custom interface to store/fetch files using the old filestream way, is there a way to log which user modified a file opened directly from the share exposed by Sql Server 2012?

This is not possible without some type of file watcher application as Windows does not track this information itself.

Turn on auditing at the file system level. The file system APIs should then capture this information to the Security Event log.
