Default GFCI Protection Question ?

Concerning the normal GFCI protectors/modules:

Obviously they protect "downstream" like they are designed to.

But does this protection also extend "upstream" ?
If so, to where ?


No, only downstream.

Ideally the GFCI would be the first outlet in line coming off that
circuit's breaker.

There are GFCI breakers if you need to protect any upstream wiring.
