They aren't recording the words you look up. One of the things the Event table is used for is the Awards. The "Word Up!" award is given after 10 dictionary look ups. When the EventCount on the EventTpe 9 row reaches 10, you get the award. After that, it just keeps counting the lookups.

You said "The database updates tend to be an insert and a delete, rather than updating the existing row". Do you intercepted the firmware queries?
No, from inspecting the database. I can see that for most updates, a row has been added to the end of the table, rather than updating where it was before. I am not completely certain that this is what is happening, but based on what I see, it is probably right.
