I mis-spoke. What I intended to say is that embedded triples, regardless of where they appear, are the same triple and have no named graph component. They don’t. “go” anywhere.

The annotation syntax asserts a triple within whatever graph contains it, and describes other triples, also in that graph, whose subject is an embedded triple.

The point is that embedded triples can’t be thought of as having a named graph component.
