This might sound like nit-picking, but in cases 2 and 3, the "sudo  
updmap-sys" case and the simple "updmap" case, there is an "order of  
appearance" in which the directories are searched. If both  
~/.texlive<year> and ~/Library/texmf have the same file, then only  
the one from ~/.texlive<year> is used. A MAP file fragment like  
lucida.map or the Lucida FD, TFM, VF, and PFB files are in a good  
place in ~/Library/texmf since they're found there by every TeX Live  
release when they stay unique.

In the first case, the "sudo -H updmap-sys" (corrected usage) case,  
the "personal" directories of user root are searched. They usually  
don't exist, but it's so easy to create them by accident: sudo -H  
updmap ...
