    It doesn't. It saves a receipt telling the OS what was installed but I do not believe that the entire package is saved anywhere.

    Take a look in Library/Receipts (or maybe ~/Library/Receipts).

    When you're in Software Update, always pick download only, or the other one to do with install and save or something (can't remember, on a windows computer atm and can't check). That way, they will always be saved. I do that so that I only have to download the packages once for both my macs.
