AWB, how and when the camera decides?

Yep!

The important thing to remember, however, is that even a white or gray card sampling is limited to the light striking that surface and will never generate more than the four multipliers used for biasing the color balance.

That is why many pros include a frame with a Macbeth color checker before the start of an outdoor session. That frame may be used to apply white balance in PP and/or to create a custom import profile for Lightroom and ACR.

The camera does an analysis of the capture data to generate four so-called white balance multipliers used for scaling the RGBG channels when processing the data to a viewable image. These four numbers are stored in the MakerNotes section of the EXIF for use by compatible RAW converters and are also used directly for in-camera JPEG.
