Where did you get those terms?  I don't think mapping is a class, unless you're talking about the actual implementation of Hibernate...

Yes I'm talking about the actual implementation of Hibernate. And in there I understand that we have to modify some XML files, and also create a class that would have the gettters and setters. I understand there's more to it as well.

The actual implementation of the mapping class can be found in the package org.hibernate.mapping [1].  For the actual XML configuration, see the reference manual [2].

Hibernate does not provide any DAO classes/model classes, that would be implemented by the user.  Again, see the reference manual on how to make your DAOs [3] and models [4].

To me, their difference is about idea:
+Hibernate: Try to save the java object into relational database instead of object database.
+DAO, Model: Try to make accessing to data independent on data storage mechanism.
