Why Magento2 set entity_type_id statically at CategorySetup, CustomerSetup

Why Magento2 set entity_type_id statically at CategorySetup, CustomerSetup

I am trying to create a custom Eav entity in Magento 2.

I have gone through two core eav entity modules in Magento which are Catalog and Customer.

There are a couple of things which I found strange in these two modules.

 

Setup Files

CategorySetup.php :  

'entity_type_id' => self::CATEGORY_ENTITY_TYPE_ID

 

CustomerSetup.php :

entity_type_id' => \Magento\Customer\Api\CustomerMetadataInterface::ATTRIBUTE_SET_ID_CUSTOMER

 

It seems like Magento sets entity_type_id statically here.

 

Q1: Why Magento sets staticallyentity_type_id here though it manages dynamically within the tableeav_entity_type?

Q2: When are the records in the eav_entity_type table created?

Q3: If I need to create a custom EAV model, the how should I define entity_type_id for that model
