Is it Kafka a real Event Store DB?

Hi Guys, I was talking with some others about Event Store Databases, and noticed that several people agree to use Kafka as an EventDatabase, however, several others don’t agree with this approach of using Kafka as an Event Store DB.
I would like to hear about the opinion of this community and understand what is the position of Confluent in this way.
For confluent is it Kafka a Event Store database?
