Default [Full Wipe] Stock recovery vs Custom recovery

Is it correct that a full wipe with stock recovery will wipe the internal card as well, while the full wipe made with a custom recovery will not?

On stock, it does wiped all the content on internal sd but on a custom cwm it depends. Im using chenglu's and it doesn't wiped my internal sd when doing a restore facotry reset on cwm.

Well your internal storage is mounted at data/media so if you format data, i can only assume that media will go with it.

That Is weird indeed. Custom recoveries don't/shouldn't wipe internal sdcard while wiping data. Twrp used to but it doesn't anymore. And cwm has never wiped it AFAIK.

No. Most of the roms updater scripts are set wipe system partition and/or data and some have the option in aroma for the users to choose. But internal/external sdcards don't get wiped.

That is true for stock recovery but custome recoveries make sure to not wipe the contents of data/media.

I think it is a yes when we try to wipe it on stock recovery it will wipe all our data, when im in Philz Cwm, surprisingly it didnt. Maybe some CWM offer full wipe and some are not. i did try it long time ago while because im kinda flashaholic. Sorry if im wrong.
If I do help, don't forget to press thanks.
