PBC is the default in Espresso. If you don't use PARTIAL_PERIODIC, the system will be fully periodic in all directions. Of course, all integration, analysis etc. are supposed to heed this correctly. As for the positions outside the box, please read the corresponding FAQ entry:

The positions of two intergration steps are different, as Espresso is using a Langevin thermostat by default, which has a random component.

3.Does all above have connection with PARTIAL PERIODIC feature?

No. PARTIAL_PERIODIC is important if you do NOT want periodicity in all or some directions. Otherwise, the system is always periodic.
