[Koha] Status "in transit" after checking in

Hi Michael,  
Why do some items belong to branch B if they’re never going there?
I’m asking because there is an option in the circulation rules to « float » your collection, meaning that wherever the item is returned, it will stay at whichever branch it was checked in at.  


I *think* this doesn’t affect the homebranch (your item would have homebranch B, holdingbranch A), but I’m not 100% sure. Thats why I was asking why some items belong to branch B.  

Hope this helps!
