Payload counts in dashboards

We understand an independent timestamp creates a new payload. We also understand that it counts as a payload when it comes out/is fetched for showing in a graph/dashboard. Does that mean that if someone is looking at 1 month of data, every one of those data points counts as a payload for that fetch as well? If they hit refresh, did they just pull those “payloads” again?

Say you have a curious user and they look at 1 month of data, then 6 weeks of data, then 3 months of data, did that count as a bunch of payloads?

Data being requested for dashboards do not count towards any payload numbers.
