Ubuntu – How does dpkg install a package


The dpkg manual states:

This manual is intended for users wishing to understand dpkg's command
line options and package states in more detail than that provided by
dpkg –help.

It should not be used by package maintainers wishing to understand how
dpkg will install their packages.
The descriptions of what dpkg does
when installing and removing packages are particularly inadequate.

So where do I find the information on "how dpkg will install my packages"?
