How do body comp scales interpret glycogen?

This is just for pure curiosity. I don't think you can do anything with this. But I'll get to that. I have a Withings and it gives weight and % water, % fat, % bone, % muscle.

Alright. A big contributor to day to day weight swing is water and glycogen usage and storage. I'm curious how something like a Withings interprets liver and muscle glycogen. Will that fall under water weight, muscle, or fat. I can rule out bone as bone % stays identical on every reading, as I would hope it to!

I weigh sometimes after a workout. Just notice the % for water doesn't do what I'd expect. I simply rehydrate after workouts as necessary without a scale. So wouldn't change that, just curious.
