Do new defects inherit the iteration and/or release of their parent story?

We have a story that is assigned to an iteration and a release. During testing for that story, defects are created. Does each new defect inherit the iteration and/or release of the parent story, or are these fields empty. Does this change, depending on how or where the defect is created?


I think the new defect does *not* inherit the iteration or release of the parent story, but I wanted to confirm that. When the new defect has a blank iteration and release, then it appears in the backlog, and this is somewhat confusing. Our team is looking for the best way to keep these short-term work-in-progress defects from appearing unnecessarily in the backlog.
