Both, when a new user is added first it is added into passwd having set up a
home directory, with a special shell command then it sets up the user in it
own
databases.

The directory used for users is in /opt/mbse/home if using the default
PREFIX
settings as defined using configure during build.

Personally as I can run multi boot partitions across different drives I use
/home/mbse instead of /opt/mbse.  Note if you do this you MUST using a text
editor change SETUP.sh before use and replace all instances of /opt with
/home
