Default Unbound Database

I am running DNSCrypt-Proxy on openbsd latest. I am also running unbound as the caching dns service. I was expecting every DNS lookup to be stored in the unbound database so that there wouldn't need to be a lookup performed everytime if that domain had already been resolved. However, looking in /var/unbound/db/ shows that there are no files.

Is there somewhere else i should look or do i need to instruct it to retain previous resolves. Or is this frowned upon for security?
I was expecting o see a readout similar to dhcp.leases

Thanks

Unbound is a caching DNS resolver. Cache is stored in memory, not on disk. The default cache size is 4 MB, with messages (resolutions) expiring after 1 day. You can change these settings and other defaults in unbound.conf(5).

The /var/unbound/db directory stores applicable key files, such as root.key.
