how exactly does wordpress's internal rewrite work?
It doesn't uses a .htaccess file but it can still show the right content, does the code analyze the URI code?

In simplified terms, it looks at the requested URI (previously stored by Apache into a server variable as part of the initial incoming HTTP request-handling), and then opens the WP database, reads in, and outputs the desired content associated with that URI.

So, it's not a "rewrite" per-se, but rather, a database file read.
