Thanks for the quick response!
My experience with the term "calculated field" comes from use of the JIRA Misc Custom Fields plugin.
In this sense a calculated field is one who's value is calculated from a formula and can reference the values of other fields. I believe that the value is therefore not stored in the database, and is instead calculated for display. This is actually what I'm curious about, whether the checklist fields touch the database or not. I'm running some tests to track down the source of increases in our reindex times, and have a hunch that calculated fields might play a role.
Thanks for your responses. I've been performing tests on our JIRA instances with regard to reindex time and use of calculated fields. At one point there was an unusual test result that involved the Checklist plugin, so I began to question whether it made use of calculated fields. That unusual test result could not be reproduced, so I think it was erroneous. And your responses also helped clear up the situation for me.
