Well it works for me here. I'm relative new to the digiKam code, but as far as I know and from the scheme of the database all folder thumbnails are just references to existing images in your albums. You can see them in the database table "Albums" (in the column "Icon"). So as long as you don't change the folder layout, it works fine to use the database on an external device.
Thumbnails are not saved in the rc file, but I will check it with digiKam 0.9.3 just to be absolutely sure (I'm using 0.9.4-SVN and 0.10-SVN).
The only thing I have to change is the root-Path in the digikamrc (or in the settings dialog) to point to the new root folder.
I have 3 databases here, the first is my private photo collection, the second is university stuff and the third is my video collection (you can tag videos as well in digiKam). All of the three databases have their own folder thumbnails... it should work fine.
Now that I think about it (but I will test it anyway) this works for me since digiKam 0.9.2
