How does QualysGuard deal with superseded Microsoft patches?

In our vulnerability scanning reports there are a number of vulnerabilities identified that have been remediated by superseded vendor patches, for example MS10-009 is superseded by MS10-029 - this is an example only but you know what I mean.  In many cases our investigation shows the most current patch was applied however Qualys is still reporting the vulnerability and the older patch; can anyone explain this behavior and is there any good documentation on how Qualys deals with superseded patches?
