The updates download by steam, and then are applied on launch. It seems they're working around the limits of steam's autoupdater, which can't do delta patching for a game which isn't in a GCF file, but redownloads a whole new copy of the file (which is fine for lots of small files, but sucks for big pack files). What it looks like they've done is made their own delta patcher that works with steam, and the download is just the changes to be made to the files.
