Wandering npc's

I know npc’s have been changed so they mostly gather at safe spots, mostly, but do they still randomly wander about too?
I’ve got npc spawn rate set to 5 I think and even though i’m visiting farms/evac shelters there seems to be less npcs now compared to before.
I know about refugee centers, but i’ve only found 1 over the past couple of months of playing


NPCs find a safe place and stick to it for now.

We hope to add looting behavior during this experimental cycle, but that could be anytime in the next 6 months.
