Wallpaper changes when I open my terminal

Today I decided to install i3wm and all has been going well, until I tried changing my wallpaper.
Every time I open the terminal the wallpaper changes to a specific image in my backgrounds directory.
I have searched through .zshrc, .profile, .bashrc and any similar script that I know could execute when the terminal is opened, but to no avail.
Is there any way to source the root of my problem here?

How are you changing your wallpaper to begin with?
Does your i3 config contain any mentions of nitrogen, feh, or other programs that could set the wallpaper?

At the moment there is no such line in my i3 config. However if I launch nitrogen and assign a wallpaper, it will persist until I open a new instance of the terminal.

I figured it out, didn’t know that wal -R would also set my wallpaper…
Removed it from my .zshrc and it was fixed.
