Well, I can't seem to get what you are missing apart from the feature
you asked but let me try explaining how I use BBDB; if that is of any
help to you.

When reading mail in the summary buffer hitting ';' prompts me to add
the name if it does not already exists.

C-c b asks me for a regex to search the BBDB and it shows the matches
in another buffer.  If that buffer is made the focus, hitting C-h m
will show all the keys you can use to edit/add names, aliases and

I seem to have the following customisations all over the place
;;in .emacs
 '(bbdb-get-addresses-headers (quote ((authors "From" "Resent-From" "Reply-To") 
(recipients "Resent-To" "Resent-CC" "To" "Cc" "CC" "BCC"))))
 '(bbdb-get-only-first-address-p nil)
 '(bbdb-info-file "c:/gnu/elisp/bbdb-2.35/texinfo/")

;;;;BBDB in .gnus.el
(require 'bbdb)
(require 'bbdb-com)
(require 'bbdb-gnus)
(require 'bbdb-hooks)
(require 'gnus-bbdb) 
;; ;;need for TAB expansion in headers for addresses
(require 'message-x);; search for message-x.el on the web
;; (setq message-x-body-function
;;       '(lambda () (interactive)(hippie-expand nil)))

(bbdb-initialize 'gnus 'message)
(add-hook 'gnus-startup-hook 'bbdb-insinuate-gnus)
(setq bbdb-send-mail-style 'message)
(add-hook 'message-setup-hook 'bbdb-define-all-aliases)
(global-set-key (kbd "C-c b") 'bbdb)
(autoload 'bbdb/gnus-lines-and-from "bbdb-gnus")
(setq gnus-optional-headers 'bbdb/gnus-lines-and-from)
(setq bbdb-completion-display-record nil)
(setq bbdb-north-american-phone-numbers-p nil)
(setq bbdb-complete-name-allow-cycling t)
(setq bbdb-define-all-aliases-mode 'all)
(setq bbdb-default-country nil)

Have you had a chance to look at the info file?
