It does nothing any more (and has not for a long time), I do not
know why it still exists. When it did do something, I am fairly
certain that it passed options to texexec, not mpost

That mptopdf can process mp input files at all should be seen as
a bonus feature, I think. Its core business is converting mp
output to pdf.
