    i have found that addon domains are recheable not only from

    myaddondomain.com

    and

    www.myaddondomain.com

    but from

    myaddondomain.mymaindomain.com

    and

    www.myaddondomain.mymaindomain.com


    do i should redirect any addon domain from redirects option with a permanent 301 to the right

    myaddondomain.com

    or

    www.myaddondomain.com

    and wht if someone try to get directly to a subfolder of my addon domain after the 301

    myaddondomain.mymaindomain.com/somefolder

    will that url work after 301 redirect of myaddondomain.mymaindomain.com so creating again duplicate content and forcing to create 301 redirection for every single folder in myaddondomain

    It is normal for a sub-domain of the primary domain to be aliased to the add-on domain; this does not duplicate content, but does make it possible to be used as an alternate access method.

    This is a very normal behavior and should not cause any problems for you whatsoever.
