What black magic is this??

I assume the cap works because there is an inner cap/structure (which threads into the filter threads of the front element) that is articulated to an outer cap (which is pulled slightly away from the inner cap by the edges of the lens when the lens is retracted), the articulation of which activates the lens cover.

I assume if you use this you can't use a lens hood right?

There is probably no reason you can't glue a lens hood to the outer cap... but this has its obvious drawbacks.
