the Scavenger help screen and loot and concealment bars

Just noticed that the scavenger help screen that pops up after leaving the cryo has the loot bar with chance of finding loot or a campsite. Question 1:I was wondering how concealment plays into this for the players ? (as i almost all the time have my loot bar maxed out unless im close to DMC.) Question 2:Does concealment of camps (normal in game or player) play into the scavenger attempts by NPC's ? Question 2a: Can NPC's scavenge for loot in game?

1. Concealment stat does not affect scavenging for players - it is the modifier of a chance that NPC will see things hidden on that particular hex (items in the campsite and hiding player). Scavenging is determined by 3 factors Loot (determines % chance of finding anything at all), Safety (determines chance of accident happening), and Sneak (determines chance of making noise and alerting nearby creatures). Using proper tools and/or skills can further modify those chances.

2. NPCs gather items they manage find on the ground, but not scavenge on their own.

They don't scavenge? I thought they did, and I've seen the status state that they are "Currently Scavenging X"(Stay away from me you horrid mobs of looters!)

They do gather things, but do not "scavenge" locations in the hexes for new loot.
