Yes, nginx won't cache responses with cookies unless you
specifically ask it to via proxy_ignore_headers directive[1].

Please also note that if you do so, you may want to also instruct
nginx to hide returned cookies from clients (via proxy_hide_header
directive[2]), or you'll end up with multiple clients with the
same cookie.

Example configuration should look like:

proxy_ignore_headers Set-Cookie;
proxy_hide_header Set-Cookie;

Depending on the actual headers your backend returns you may also
need to ignore other headers as well for cache to work, notably
Expires and Cache-Control.

Alternatively, you may want to instruct your backend to not return
headers which prevent caching.

This debug lines correspond to lookup of the request in cache, and
they show that no cached response exists.
