For responding to the ingress requests, it mentions, "The reply from the microservice would follow the same path out of the cluster to reach the microservice that generated the request." However, the diagram shows the service proxy responds to the Load Balancer instead of the ingress data plane, instead of service proxy -> ingress data plane -> external load balancer.

Can you clarify which responding path is actual implementation for service mesh?

The next section clarifies that that path is for egress requests. So, is egress handled differently from the response of ingress requests?
