2.) You don't have read the documentation. You user 'vpopmail' is a
local (system) user. If you had read the docs you'd have seen
'/var/qmail/users/cdb' is responsible to directing mails to your
"virtual users" to system user "vpopmail" 'in a spedified dir'
(different for each domain; given in mentioned cdb file).

There 'qmail-local' is involved. Read the doc to get an idea how
qmail-local works. Read the archive, there should be some mails
describing what '.qmail-default' in each domains directory is good

In short: when 'vdelivermail' is invoked from '.qmail-default' is
searches 'vpasswd.cdb' (or database, if set up this way) if the
intended recipient is known in destination domain handled by
vpopmail system. If so it stores the mail in this particular
"virtual user"s maildir.

So what question /exactly/ is unanswered?
