What is the relationship between volcheck and vold?

I know vold is the daemon that manages removable media and I know that volcheck checks for new removable media, however, I have some questions:

1. Does volcheck have any effect if vold is not running?
2. With vold running, is it necessary to call volcheck after inserting removable media? Or does vold take care of finding the new media?
