I have a questions related to BuddyPress:
What's the use of wp_bp_xprofile_data table? How does the data in the table get updated?
And when any user updates his information - does the data in this table get updated?

The wp_bp_xprofile_data table holds all of the custom fields used on the front-end by BuddyPress. It is independent of the WordPress user meta.

All of the functions that interact with this table can be found in bp-xprofile/bp-xprofile-functions.php.
