There's no mounting at run time. The dmg file is a disk image, which
contains the application bundle, but you just copy the app out of the
image into your /Applications directory (or wherever) and then throw
away the disk image.

OS X-specific magic. There's an API they can use to find where the
bundle they were launched from is, and then they can just find all the
other files relative to that.
