Yes, the 3582-L23 can store the cleaning cartridges.  We have one in the 
system, and to my knowledge it has yet to be used.  The manual did say it 
was not something to be done on a regular basis, but only when the drive 
indicates that it needs to be cleaned.  So far no cleaning required 
messages, no orange lights, no media errors.  We have had this drive since 
it was first available.
