Windows 7: Rollup-packages=cumulative vs. security packages=every is required?

Rollup-packages=cumulative vs. security packages=every is required?

As far as I found out the rollup packages are cumulative.

So if I want to apply all patches from November 2016 until now only the last rollup package is needed.

Regarding the security packages its the opposite:

Every single security package from Novemeber 2016 until now is needed if I want to update
an old Win 7 system (with security packages only)..

Can someone confirm this view?

Do a rollup package contain all the security packages or are they always separate?

So MS says this is for March but all of them say basically the same thing whether it's true or not you'll just need to monitor what shows up in the update system,
Although using the security only installing process they will not stop all other "Quality rollups" from being delivered to one and they will still be showing up in the Important updates section too
