Depending on the browser they may simply end up in your Downloads folder. The list of recent downloads does not necessarily mean that the downloads are actually still there. If you open the containing folder you can tell whether or not the download remains.

Clearing the list does not necessarily remove the downloads. Again, this varies from browser to browser, but in general it does not.
