How does KeepassXC decrypt/handle passwords

I am working through some threat modelling and would like to know how KeepassXC handles the decryption process for passwords. When opening the password file a number of entries are displayed in the window. At least the username, URL and icon(if used) must be decrypted, because these are all visible. But what about the password? Is this left encrypted until I try to use it, or is it also decrypted but then hidden?

Thank you

In the best of my knowledge all fields including the password fields gets decrypted on entering the master password. Its just hidden in the window you see. though i don’t see any problem with this behaviour and your passwords are still safe.
