Currently only the following passes are using this feature: LSR, LowerSwitch, BBVectorizer and LoopVectorizer. If you look at the tests in LoopVectorize you will see that the target-dependent tests are in target-dependent directories.

These tests don't use -mtriple. Instead, their behavior changes in subtle ways depending on which targets are built. It's certainly a confusing situation.

Yes, that's what llc does.
The point is, as long as you specify a valid -mtriple you won't get any warning about a bad IR target triple. Common sense.
