Does the Keypad act as a Z-wave repeater / range extender

I am trying to understand the features built into the keypads better.  Do they function as a range extender / z-wave repeater themselves?

If not, what broadcasts z-wave signals in the ring family for your network of devices.  I understand the base station would do this and the range extender, anything else?

Keypad is just a keypad.

Only the base station and dedicated alarm extenders do this.
