The mpd package comes with a default '/etc/mpd.conf which starts the mpd daemon. If you review /etc/mpd.conf, you will see that it's places most of it files (including the Music directory) in /var and defaults to localhost.

For local use, rename /etc/mpd.conf -> /etc/mpd.backup. If you followed my post, you should have created a local .mpd/mpd.conf that creates a unix socket. Also, no need for "doas".
If mpd is started by a user, it will be able to access the users home directory. If you copy/paste my post, it should work.
