I suppose this depends on whether or not this includes superseded patches. If KACE is installing all patches, then replacing some with superseded ones. Another possibility is that it's installing updates for applications other than just windows. 

How do you have the schedule setup? Is it setup to only deploy windows OS updates, and does that include older patches and superseded ones? Does your schedule also include applications? If it includes applications it won't display updates for the applications in the uninstall updates menu that you're viewing. The 252 patches. If you're including superseded ones, it may not

What I would do is make at least 2 labels one for applications and one for OS patches. In both of those labels exclude any Superseded patches. Also be sure to exclude application installers from the patch label or it will install the applications on all devices in the device label whether or not they had the software before.
