Support files in CodeWarrior

Hi,
I have a query on the support files in codewarrior. I created a project with the target as mcf5282. I set the Connection selection in the Remote Debugger Settings as CCS-SIM (simulator).
 
vectors.s contains the IVT and then a start entry point. Here it sets the status register and jumps to asm_startmeup. Here it initializes the registers, Initializes mcf5282 peripherals and then jumps to main.
 
Even if i comment the jmp main instruction and execute the program it goes to the main() function in main.c.
1. Is it that main() function and not "start" is the starting point of execution?
2. Are the support files significant only if we download the software to the target?
 
Also , do let me know if there is any documentation on these support files.
