(I'm using Lightroom right now myself, but am not a huge fan so far. Love how well it handles RAW, but not used to its UI yet)
Actually no Lr doesn't use a vault system at all. You can go right to the directory were the actual photos are located.(Please see image below) Now keep in mind Lr does none destructive editing, so none of the raw files are actually ever changed. It however keeps a small database of the changes one appears to make to the files.

There is a huge difference in encapsulation and just putting all your settings into one database file.
