Okay, I think I see your question, some games have major updates that might add something into the original game core. (not referring to game updates focused on bug /exploit fixes) This would be considered free even though the update introduced a large content package. (not referring to that game or this, just a comment on what I have noticed before)
Now when a game releases expansions, they can like the one on Mount & Blade, be released as a stand alone. (I purchased the Fire and Sword) But not always, as some if not most game expansions are released to be played with the same game core and this is when you would see a price for such game expansion.
Hope that clears your thoughts.
