They don't go anywhere, it's just Google closes the app till you open it again. It's to do with the apps permissions, so if you don't use it, I think it's after 3 months they put them asleep 😴

The apps are still there. Check the apps app, there is a list of apps on your phone and beside some of them it will tell you if they are sleeping or in deep sleep.

@type: Further to the above, please head to Settings > Battery and device care > Battery > Background usage limits, and you will find your Sleeping and Deep Sleeping apps listed here. 

To remove an app, tap on Sleeping or Deep Sleeping Apps > Tap the 3 dots in the top right > Remove > Select an app by tapping on it > Remove. If you would prefer for this not to be automated, then toggle off 'Put unused apps to sleep'.
