I must say I have no idea what you're talking about.
Maybe it's me, but since I believe I'm pretty familiar with those concepts,
I'll assume you either expressed yourself poorly, or you don't really
understand the notions of symbols and variables.  Try to reread the elisp
manual, especially the part describing variables, symbols, and things like
symbol-function, symbol-value, symbol-plist, ...

Another way is to post here an example of a specific behavior which you find
counter intuitive (basically write a bug report, but asking why it
works that way, rather than claiming it's a bug ;-).

It'd also be helpful to cite relevant parts of the elisp manual which lead
you to your mis-understanding, so we can try and improve it.
