How does a pod know when an entry is new or should be linked to a dendron note?

When exporting, we write the id of the destination entry in the note frontmatter (eg. when exporting to airtable, we write the airtableId to the note frontmatter)

For all exports, we check if an id record of the destination type exist. If so, we perform an UPDATE. If not, we perform a CREATE and write the id in the frontmatter.

When exporting a note with a pod, the pod will write a dendronId as part of the exported record. The dendronId is linked to the unique id of the note.
