how do you use sa-update and sa-compile?

If I use sa-update it puts the rules to
/var/lib/spamassassin/3.002000. If I use
sa-compile it compiles the rules to

Does sa-compile use the rules in /var/lib/spamassassin/3.002000
or in /usr/local/share/spamassassin?

If I test spamassassin with
spamassassin -D --lint -p /etc/mail/spamassassin/
it seems that spamassassin uses the files under
/var/lib/spamassassin/3.002000 and /var/lib/spamassassin/compiled.
Is that right?
If yes, do you delete /var/lib/spamassassin/3.002000 to only use
the /var/lib/spamassassin/compiled files?
Without /var/lib/spamassassin/3.002000 files spamassassin is much
