When a new SailfishOS update is available, what packages are downloaded and updated, only the ones strictly needed for the upgrade, or also for any installed package/application that has an available update?

E.g. with the 'hotfix' update -> I was expecting a minimal change, but on my device about 50 packages got updated, including some application from Store.

It's true that the OS update currently updates everything that is updatable in the repositories. This includes the store apps. More fine-tuning in the OS update process would be needed.
