Odex ROMs have their main files moved to another area for faster booting while when you deodex the ROM these files are compiled back inside the APK....
To know weather your phone is Deodexed or Odex, just open Root Explorer app and navigate to "/system/app" and check if there files with ".odex" extension....
If yes then your ROM is Odex
Otherwise, your ROM is Deodexed....
The benefits of having a Odex ROM :
1. More space in "/data" partition.
2. First boot is faster.
The benefits of having a Deodex ROM :
1. You can customize the ROM the way you want without worrying about odexes....
