That is a good and reasonable question. I would assume that the web-side cache would relate to resources as fetched from the web, and that any transcoded or derived resources, rather like the results of XSLT stylesheets, would be internal to the application and not exposed to the outside.

But it is certainly a good idea to ask that on the bug page.
