Does the kernel keyring store anything on disk?

I'm trying to learn a bit about the kernel keyring (as background for using ecryptfs).  Does the kernel keyring store anything on disk, or is it a strictly an in-memory mechanism?  I've looked through some of the documentation, but this isn't claer to me.  If it does save things to disk, where are the file written?

thanks

Re: Does the kernel keyring store anything on disk?

The Linux kernel never stores anything on a disk of its own behalf.
