The function bbdb-mua-auto-update-init is called like
bbdb-initialize: you need to specify the MUAs it should hook into.
(Maybe you want that it watches only incomming or only outgoing

What do you mean by "closing the BBDB buffer"?  As in similar modes,
BBDB binds "q" to quit-window.

The idea is that the action specified by the cdr can be more
"aggressive" than the action specified by the car.  So if you call
the command with C-u (because you know what you want), you get the
more "aggressive" action.  (Of course, if "query" is all you always
want, you need not worry about the cdr.  Or you make the cdr a less
aggressive action.  The choices are yours.)
