Do upgrades make use of the $uninstall folders?



There are a couple of freeware/shareware apps that make deleting the
$uninstall folders easier. They make a good argument that it is extremely
rare to need to uninstall a patch after Windows has been running for a few
days. And they take up GB of space!! But I wondered if, say, when you
install a new version of Office or Windows Explorer, does the process do an
uninstall of the previous version, needing access to those folders?
