In the mash for pH purposes and in the boil for flavour purposes.

If you add gypsum to the mash, doesn't it end up in the boil ?

Yes it does but some people adjust their mash pH by using minerals such as gypsum to get better conversion. I personally am lazy and just use 5.2 in the mash and then use mineral additions in the BK to adjust the water to style.
