The Action Buttons widget just calls xflock4, which itself just a
little wrapper script that takes a peek at what is installed on your
system and runs it. In your case, xlock.

As for automagic locking of the screen after a period of time, that's
probably handled by xscreensaver (not an Xfce app). Poke around in the
Settings submenu of the desktop menu for screensaver settings, see if
that gets you what you need.
