[Dovecot] Homedir vs locations vs mail_location?

I use Dovecot for rather long time, but I'm still in doubt for some
small things. Here they are:
1. The homedir value points to the place where everything for the user
stored at, while mail_location is something (some place) where mail
stored at. if I deal with pure virtual users (all users are in sql
tables and no system homes for them at all), should I ever care for
returning meaningful value for 'homedir' (via password_query's
userdb_home), or I can simple return empty or constant ('' or '123') for
it and it won't mess anything?
2. If I use single (default) namespace, should I set namespace's
location (to the same value as global mail_location), and should I
expect anything strange if I skip it to set? Reversely, is it possible
not to set global mail_location and set only namespace's location (which
would be more logical as namespace definition is compact and easy to
find in config)?
I've reread my questions and see it is dummy ones, but I'd like to know
that for sure.
Thank you in advance,
