*When I click on Get Info in iTunes, the Artwork and Lyrics tabs are grayed out. I'm guessing this is because WAV files don't support them.*
*But the confusing part is, when I click on Get Album Artwork for a WAV file, iTunes sometimes finds the artwork and adds it to the file*
When iTunes adds artwork that it finds in the store for that album it stores it in an album artwork folder in your iTunes folder. The artwork is then referenced in your library to the album in question, it doesn't add it directly to the WAV file.
*So if that's the case, why doesn't iTunes allow for artwork to be added manually?*
Because adding it manually adds it to the actual file and WAV doesn't support that functionality.
*What about MP3 files? Is artwork stored in the same fashion? Or is the artwork added directly to the file itself?*
If the artwork is added automatically from by iTunes it goes to the album artwork folder if you add it manually it is added to the file. MP3 supports adding artwork to a file.
