Image Preview are not cached on hard drive. there are hosted in your photo file metadata. RAW preview is a jpeg image geenrated by your camera to display speedly the image on a tv.

For other format, IPTC.Preview is used for that (PNG, TIFF). For jpeg image, the preview is generated by a reduced version of real image provided by libjpeg...

in all case, these preview mode extraction are very fast. There is no plan to make a cache for that.
