Where are media comments stored?

Hi,

I am trying to wrap my head around how media comments work in Canvas. It seems that media comments recorded on a wiki page are not stored in the course or the user's personal files, but are instead housed in the Canvas cloud, and embedded into the page. This has one bonus effect of being able to copy the html code for the video and place it in any of your other courses.  However, there does not seem to be a way of searching for or locating your past media comments.  Is there any rhyme or reason to where they are stored and how you can access them?  Are there any restrictions on who can view the comments?  If the media comment content is not linked to a course or user, but rather saved in canvas under a randomly generated locator number, can it be pasted anywhere in Canvas, and anyone could view it?

Thanks!
