I apologize. This question was more looking for insight into how the
requests are made.  One more interesting question is what does each
component get from the previous one?

I looked into the javadoc for this class and the description is as follows:
This class is experimental and will be changing in the future.

Are there any tips to point us in the right direction to use and manipulate
this? Also does this class get passed from component to component?

So does the doc list get passed down the chain in the responsebuilder?

In a way that might manipulate what is returned.  We have 2 potential
avenues. 1. Change the document to remove some values out of a multivalued
field or 2. Change the facets returned.
