Good question, and I think I see where you're headed, but I don' have a helpful answer.
There were two new books via sync, and I believe four or five metadata changes. For the changes, two were attempts to edit device-side files, the others were epubs that were removed from the device and re-sent (reconversions for CSS tweaks).
I'll pay more attention next time, but of course removing and re-sending isn't a metadata tweak, it's a new file.
