Because your question doesn't have an answer outside of "just delete them".

The folders are from the installers, saving a temp location off from the system drive if another drive is available. There is no default setting that instructs them to do so, they pick the biggest drive available that is not the system drive. The installers merely did not clean up after themselves.

Can you give the complete path to these updates? I would like to see if I have similar backups and I will also try to answer your original question.
