What lies in redux store is widely use data, it could be some application state (login state, sidebar visibility state, current route - routing)

What lies in component state is the state of this said component.

If i'm extrapolating your point, if I have flag which tells me if the sidebar is open (pure presentational data) I have to store it in the state of the top level component and pass the value or/and the update function for this value for all the components that need it ?

Basically yes. It's a separation of concerns - presentational data are not mixed with app data. Altough it could also be achieved using separate redux store.
But this is just my opinion, not a definitive answer to app state management. Clearly there is a lot of ways and what's important is that everything stays clear and easy to maintain/develop/debug.
