Smart Update takes multiple runs?

I have an internal drive used for data only that I wanted to re-purpose. It contains a little over 4600 files. I used SuperDuper erase then copy it to an external swappable tray drive of the same size. It completed without errors. To verify, I changed the SuperDuper options to smart update and ran again. Imagine my surprise when it updated over 1500 of 4600 files. I ran it multiple times. It took 4 runs before no files were copied. Results from each run was 1500, 735, 321, 6, 0, 0, 0 files copied. I can assure you that no updates were made to the original drive between runs.

I really hope you can provide an explanation as I'm now doubting the accuracy of all my backups.
