cyrus + postfix + lmtpd questions

Id really appreciate if someone could explain a couple of things im confused

As far as I can see lmtpd is in cyrus.conf,  its spawned by cyrus master and
is part of cyrus.
But, what is it for ?

For example, if cyrus is set as the local delivery agent on Postfix,
does cyrus use its lmtpd anyway ?
Does not cyrus have its own delivery agent ? why the need to use lmtpd ?

In short, Im confused about the differences between Postfix lmtp and Cyrus
lmtpd and how they interact.

Thanks a lot for any help.
