BESMgmt.mdf holds most of the configuration settings for BES. This includes the inventory of all the BES users, devices, IT Policies, etc. It also contains the settings necessary for each BES service to run and communicate with each other over an enterprise.

Basically it contains almost all the data you see via the administrative screens, settings for services to run, etc. If this DB is loss or corrupted, it generally means needing to create a new BES setup and reactivating each phone. I'm uncertain if user/device data would still be accessible in this case - we luckily never had this occur so far.

So no details from the phones eg: call logs / sms messages etc etc and or other device specific details are stored in the database, these types of things are local to the Phone only.

No, call logs, sms logs, etc. are not stored in the database. They are stored (if you enable this logging) in the a folder where BES is installed with a name in the "yyyymmdd" format. The files within there are various logs such as the call log, sms log, mds logs, etc.
