Why Brave is Saving data on device in Private only mode

Description of the issue:
Iphone Storage detects some utilisation related to Brave, but it is not the application itself.
The application is running in “Private only” with no credential saved

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Application set to run in Private mode and disable the saving of credentials
  2. Surf on some random pages
  3. Close Brave
  4. Go to Settings>General>Iphone Storage>Brave
  5. You will see the local footprint for “Documents and data” not being 0.

Expected result:
The “Documents and Data” informations should be 0 for an application set to run only in Private mode.

Brave Version( check About Brave):
1.21 -

Mobile Device details
IPhone 12 running in ios 14.2.1

Additional Information:
The only way I saw to remove the “Documents and Data” is to remove completely the app.
