Default Question about Asp.net Membership

Hi
I have a couple questions about asp.net membership.
First how does the asp.net configuration. Like where does it store the information? Like I created a user(and gave a role to it) in there and now I launched my site and I noticed when I went and registered the same user name it had the same role that was given to the one in the asp.net configuration.
So I made another user through the registration(not the asp.net configuration) and it did not have this role(what is a good thing). But I don't understand how it remembered that user and the role. Like I looked through the mssql tables and there is nothing about the role I made in the asp.net role table and before I registered there where no users in the "users" table.
So this has lead me to believe this stuff is stored somewhere else. What seems kinda weird to me why they have all these tables but they(microsoft) don't use them.
