I know Magento has following core functions for session and cookie handling:
When does Magento set Cookies and when PHP Sessions? What are the use cases?
I'm a bit confused, because I know Magento stores the cart information in

Mage::getSingleton('customer/session'). But the checkout session doesn't seem to be a session, but a cookie instead. Because when I close the browser and re-open the page the items are still in the cart.
Does that mean, that the
checkout/sessionmodel sets cookies and not the global
