Windows and Citrix Profiles

First if I understand we can configure Windows user profile in ADUC, after creating a share in the Network.

In ADUC there is a profile tab, in Profile path field we can type the path to the share that will hold the user settings.
in Local profile field we can specify user Home folder which is a path to a network share, and when a user opens up a new document and write on it then clicks save the folder specified in local profile will be shown up by default for user to save the document.
Well , is the folder specified in Local profile is the same as Documents folder as known as My Documents in previous windows version.  

After configuring user profile as stated above does that mean it will follow the user wherever they login. I am not sure if this is called Roaming profile ? Well  if this is called Roaming Profile . does it mean we have already excluded Documents folder from Redirection without the need to configure policy for folder redirection ?

in ADUC , there is another tab "Remote Desktop Service Profile", is this can be used for Citrix user profiles or just Windows RDS?

Any clarification on this will be very appreciated.

Thanks

Windows and citrix profile are different, When ever user launch the citrix app it create a citrix profile in server if yo uenabled the profile redirection then when user logoff the citrix session the profile will automatically delete and update to share folder.

So Citrix Profile always acts as Roaming profile, I mean regardless from which client a user is connecting to CItrix farm/site, they will see the same Desktop...Correct ?
As for the Applications they open and use , the saving will always go to the Share specified in ADUC Remote Desktop Services Profile tab ?

Their Windows Profile will not interfere with Citrix Profile. Correct?
When users connect to Citrix or login to Windows the Desktop will be different . Correct?
