When I run composer update on my straight SS3.0.3 install (from the silverstripe.org download link), Composer goes ahead and downloads and creates what appears to be a copy of various packages within the respective directories...

This is normal behaviour. Instead of putting your silverstripe modules as git submodules, svn externals you simply state your dependancies in the composer.json file and composer will download the modules (any dependancies as well) for you. You should then exclude all your composer'ed folders from your own version control (apart from composer.json and composer.lock). The autoloader stuff helps with automatically including classes from the library (but we don't make use of that feature at the moment as SS has it's own manifest builder)
