What really happens with the resolution when a FF camera is used in DX mode? Is the photo taken in FF and then down sampled to get to DX? Or are the outer pixels on the FF sensor ignored in DX mode? My guess would be the latter.

Your guess is right and IMHO cropped mode useless to start with - one always can crop in PP and can for example achieve 1:1 ratio without loosing sides.

Since you can shoot ar higher fps and get a deeper buffer in the crop modes, they can be useful
