Is the output of a command called by puppet stored somewhere on the master or agent?

For example, if have the statement
commands :ls => "ls"

and then I try something like " ls, '/' "

where does the output of "ls /" go? I've tried poking around in vardir on both the master and the agent with no luck. I'm probably just missing it, but this would help with some debugging. I'm looking for both stdout and stderr.
Puppet doesn't capture the output of commands in a persistent way like
it does with the `logoutput` parameter for the exec type. It does get
written to a tempfile, but deleted soon after.

However, you could easily modify lib/puppet/provider.rb, line 121 (in
2.7.x), to output the result of calling `execute(cmd)`. That call will
return the combined stdout and stderr output as a string.
