Before I begin, I will plead ignorance of how these things really happen.

It appears that what should be happening is that the database should always be external, but whether it is placed inside the same folder.

To the user, the interpretation of 'internal' would be that it is within it's own folder and 'external' would be that the actual database is somewhere else during set-up.

In this way, the database (I assume) could easily be copied and re-attached either 'internally' or 'externally'.

Am I missing something here?

That is my point.  That is why Base needs to make setting up an external
db easy - like when the db is being created.  Check one box for the
embedded model, another for the split/external model.  Appropriate Help
infornation will be needed.  While they are at it, how about an option
to do mariadb or mysql external db instead of just HSQL or Firebird?
