Anyone know how IBM handles updates for the optional component

Perhaps the following link is helpful, despite the poorly /named/ link shown _underlined_ in the snippet of text quoted from that URL; "poorly named" because the text clearly calls-out the "base package" rather than using text that conspicuously implies fixes from the "optional packages" are included [or so I infer; see my followup after the snippet]?:

Expanding the earlier updates [fixpack] descriptions show that some offer no fixes specific to any _optional package_, from which the logical inference is that there are only _base package_ fixes included. And conversely, the appearance of the bullet(s) explicitly naming one or both _optional package_ would seem to suggest these fixpacks must contain updates for more than just the _base package_.
