Default OT Delphi Question Calculated Field

I have a persistent field in a table... I use it as a calculated field
shown in a display. The display updates every several seconds, and the
field updates properly. My question is... Does this calculated field
only get calculated in the grid displayed field on my client computer?
or is it being calculated and stored in the db record?

I hope it is the former....

thanks great gurus ... wizards, friends, etc...

Calculated fields are purely client side.
