OK! And thanks for clarifying this issue for me. I now appreciate the advantages offered by the Sandbox over a Full Update (and I also see why it is important to maintain both).

Just one more question, then:

It would seem to follow that a corollary to the way the Sandbox behaves is that there is absolutely no advantage to making any Smart Updates to the Sandbox if there have been no intervening application downloads/updates to Macintosh HD. If this is correct, I think I've finally succeeded in grasping the logic behind the Sandbox.
