Needing a clarification about purchases, iCloud, and streaming(?)

hi all, i'm a little confused about what & how itunes purchases are displayed and played on a devise (ipad or iphone) when the purchases originated from a mac...

on my ipad, i have the 'show all videos' turned on, so i can see the mac-based purchases when i'm in the video app. they appear with the icloud symbol beside them. the cloud has the downward pointing arrow - as if to suggest that i can download it by tapping it. so to my knowledge they are not downloaded, right?

now, if i double tap that video, it begins to play. does that mean it is downloading the video while playing? or am i streaming it - assuming i'm on wifi?

the same questions apply to music bought on a mac but displayed on my ipad and iphone.
