It seems you figured this out.

A continuously updated BBDB buffer is maintained via bbdb-mua-auto-update.

See the section "Noninteractive functions" in README.

Either you let BBDB handle these things interactively via commands
like bbdb-mua-display-records bound to ":" (see above, your item 1.),
or you do them non-interactively (your item 2.)

Anything else "do what I mean" you might have to hack on your own.

Interactive commands: bind bbdb-mua-update-interactive-p to your liking
(see README).

Noninteractively: see again the section "Noninteractive functions"
