If you use "third part components" in your app, anything is possible; e.g. malware.

Android apps don't store cookies like websites do: they do persist data locally to the device they execute on, and need permission to do so as part of their installation.
However, these are not covered by the same legislation as websites (which have to follow GDPR). So while websites and webapps have to get explicit permission from the user to store cookies - and pop up that annoying box every time - apps don't as the user has already explicitly granted the permission when installing.
