Acer Aspire 5 A515-56G Do Firmware Updates Re-Flash or Modify?

I own an Acer Aspire 5 A515-56G-54K9. (NX.AT1EK.009)

When I install a firmware update through Windows Update, does that completely re-flash my firmware with a new image, or does it just modify certain specific files in order to update them?

    If you install a firmware update, the firmware on the chip will be completely erased and then the new version will be flashed.
