in my smtpd.conf i specify saslauthd as the pwcheck_method - what is PAM doing?!

According to the smtpd.conf below you specified sasldb, not saslauthd. (^-^)

saslauthd 2.1.2 authentication mechanisms: getpwent kerberos5 pam
rimap shadow ldap


pwcheck_method: auxprop
mech_list: plain login
auxprop_plugin: sasldb2

when i specify the service i get denied access, obviously PAM was
reading from the /etc/passwd file - because i was using a UNIX user to
test auth.

Correct, now you have to decide either to use sasldb and set up users in sasldb or to use passwd and use system users, either with or without login shell.

If you want to use saslauthd for postfix use these settings for smtpd.conf:
pwcheck_method: saslauthd
mech_list: plain login

That should work
