Just zeroing in on your mention of the profile folder for the user.
When a user 'Fred' logs on to a PC for the first time, the 'user profile folder' is 'fred', for example.
If that account is recreated elsewhere and then logs on again, the PC sees it as a different user to the one before and in order to identify them as separate accounts, appends the windows domain name on the end as you note.
So the first time a user logs on, the windows domain is not used in this context.
