BPC and 'retraction' using SAP delivered IBP virtual providers

I am about to implement a planning solution with BPC 10.1 for NW on an embedded BI. I have done plenty of implementations with BPS/IP and know a fair bit about retraction with those technologies.

Since SAP delivers the IBP content I figured I ought to try using it instead of inventing the wheel anew.

After having captured the planning data within BPC business users now expect to see it in the ERP tables.

Hence, I am trying the following set-up using the SAP delivered virtual provider /ERP/COOM_V06 as target and my own cube as source containing the plan data:

In the FOX the data is written to the virtual provider (at this point only dummy data):

The trace claims that one record was generated (which is expected):

By clicking 'Save Planning Buffer' the data is saved to the DB:

So WHERE is the data saved to???

In the definition of the virtual provider it is not possible to find what table (and client) the data is written to. It invokes CL_FCOM_IP_IPROV_WRITABLE, but debugging it does not really help.

Are stored procedures invoked? If yes, where is it possible to see which ones?

SAP has delivered all these IBP functionalities that could serve as templates for own implementations, but it seems as if there is a distinct lack of documentation on how they can be used.

Thanks for any help/clarification.
