XF 1.5 What XF tables hold cache data?

Recently I was working in the database on a problem late at night and encountered polluted cache data. There were references to my old vbulletin install in the blob which I didn't understood why. I migrated from vb at the beginning of the year.
As I was fixing an urgent problem I went on with that task while remembering to get back on it later. I noted the table/field in a document, but due to windows update & restart I lost the information.

A week later now I want to research it further. But... I forgot which table / field this was in. My DB structure is rather large so I have not found it.
Does anyone have suggestions where to look?

What XF tables hold cache blobs?

Vaguely what was the cached data related to? What gave you the impression it was imported from vB?

This isn't something we do. We do maintain our own caches of things, but generally these will be rebuilt where necessary rather than being imported because often the cached data will be in a totally different format.

Many table rows might maintain their own caches for particular reasons (such as the cache of field values in xf_user_profile) but generally any sort of globally cached data will be in xf_data_registry.

It was related to datastore and had very specific vbulletin data not present in XenForo. It gave me the impression that it was not imported but rather a weird server cache issue.
