With scenarios 2 and 3 calibre extracts the cover image and displays it when you're using its cover grid mode.
Calibre ONLY automatically extracts a KNOWN cover when it ADDS.books
You can force this from inside the MDE (assumes there is a identified cover) from a selected format using the brown book icon next to the formats box

The Grid or Details or Info pane use the same cover (the one saved in the title folder), just scaled to meet the rules of the place shown.
