Younger primary students may have little knowledge about internal bodily organs. They tend to think the contents of the body are what they have seen being put into or coming out of it, such as food and blood.

Is "what they have seen being..." a noun clause functioning as subject complement describing "contents of the body"?

What is the grammatical form and function of "what" here?
Is "being put..." a present participle functioning as an object(noun) to seen?
