In their knowledge base article[1], they write:

Signal service has no record of your group memberships, group titles, group avatars, or group attributes.

They also have a blog post[2] where they explain everything in detail about how group chats work. In [2], if you scroll down, they write:

Communication is private

Communication is private on Android, iOS and Desktop. And this includes the group chat feature. But as far as I understand, the communication is stored but is encrypted. [3] According to Signal:

Signal messages and calls cannot be accessed by us or other third parties because they are always end-to-end encrypted, private, and secure.
