Vendors in "user" database

Why do vendors appear in both user and vendor databases?

Everyone starts as a user. Once the user submits a listing, they automatically become a user/vendor.

after a listing is submitted does the vendor then only appear in the vendor database? or do they still appear in the users database?

I believe everyone is listed in the user database but with different roles. At least with wordpress that is how it is. Then if the person has submitted a listing, they are also added to the vendor database.

All the users have regular profiles in WordPress/Users section (wp_users database table), but once they become vendors each user has a linked vendor profile in WordPress/Vendors section (wp_posts table, hp_vendor post type). The vendor profile is generated automatically once the first submitted listing is approved by the site admin.
