OT: Who owns a company?

I have a question that may be a little off topic, that I'd like to ask an expert:
How do I figure out who owns an LLC?
Or, let me ask the question a different way:
I have the Statement of Information for a few LLCs, that I am trying to figure out the owners of. Are the owners listed on this form?
There is a box on the form that says: Name and address of any Manager or Managers, or if none have been appointed or elected, provide the name of each member.
Are the people listed in this area, what we would normally think of as the owners of the company?
I'm doing this research because there are several companies that are making multiple contributions to elected officials in my city and I'm trying to figure out who owns these companies.
I'm in California. The blank form is available here, if that helps:

Thank you,
Bill
