Where my peers store my Wantlist?and when they actually put the CIDs in their Wantlist?

Hello there! As someone who is new to IPFS, I am trying to understand how Bitswap works. I have read from multiple sources that my peers store the CIDs I am looking for somewhere, although they don’t specify where. So that when my peers receive any of those CIDs, they will send them to me. Additionally, when I run the command “ipfs bitswap wantlist,” I sometimes see entries even when I am not actively doing anything on the network or when I just run the daemon. I am wondering if those entries are CIDs from my peers that I am actively helping them find or if they are something else entirely.Also i would like to know if it is possible to configure a node so that he puts in its wantlist every request he gets from other nodes.
any help would be really appreciated :slightly_smiling_face:
