What is the relation between NetBufferLists in the NDIS receive and send callbacks?

In the ReceiveNetBufferListsHandler and SendNetBufferListsHandler callbacks in NDIS, we get a list of NetBufferLists as input

My questions are :

  1. What is the relation between all the NetBufferLists that we receive as input inside a receive or Send Callback? how are they related to each other?

  2. What about the relation between all the NetBuffers in a NetBufferList? how are they related to each other?

  3. Is the content of the first packet present in the first NetBuffer? for example, in case of a HTTP receive or send packet, other than the headers, will the data always be present in the first NetBuffer?
