The user won't know what happened. The next time the program is
called, the user will get the new version.

The /installed/ in the OP was described as nothing more than the Restore Object (RSTOBJ) over existing objects.

Best not to confuse both what PTF activity effects for executable objects and what Compile activity effects for executable objects using REPLACE(*YES) with what *restore* effects for executable objects. The latter destroys the existing object [of the same name]. The onus is on the one performing the restore active, to ensure that the destroyed object will not be an issue; same as if they were doing Delete Program (DLTPGM) or Delete Service Program (DLTSRVPGM), instead of the restore.
