Even when you wipe data, it skips /data/media by design.

Actually, wiping data and doing a factory reset are the exact same things. This os because cache and dalvik cache are in /data as well

Twrp for the s3 behaves the same way. You still have all of the files in /data/media after a wipe

If it did wipe data/media, all your ROM zips, photos, and twrp backups would get wiped
