vpopmail:- How can we efficiently use uid & gid

Hello friends.
I am using qmail with vpopmail. And I have also enabled mysql support for it.
I am setting permissions for domains & user accounts using vmoddomlimits & vmoduser.
when I set any value using these commands then one value get stored in pw_gid column of domainname_com table.
for eg. if I give command ./vmoduser -p
Value of pw_gid becomes 2.
can anybody tell me that, is their exist any document which can tell me which digit in gid is used for what permission.
Like 2 is for disable pop access. So that I can display all the permissions in my GUI.
In short I want to ask why gid is used & how can we use it effeciently.
Or is their an other way to access these permissions.
Also tell me what is uid & how we can use it.
Also it will be nice if some can tell me what is the purpose of dir_control table & how I can use it.

Thanks in advance
