“So: Yes, the web page transmits the data. But the server is responding with HTTP 302 (REDIRECT) which basically means ‘go somewhere else.’ It usually means that the data isn’t being processed, but without the server-side code it’s impossible to tell.

No, that’s not what this usually means. Forms are often processed — and recorded just fine in a database — with a 302 redirect to another page as the response when that process is done.

This is pretty standard practice so that users don’t end up resubmitting the data if / when they happen to reload the page they end up at after the form submission. Honestly, you can’t tell what a server’s doing with a request, but I can say I’ve done exactly the above many times.
