Patches "No Longer Detected" Status

I am wondering, when a patch status is reporting "No longer detected"  on a server, (Software > Patches Reported Installed in Software Inventory) what is actually happening? Is the "no longer detected" patch actually getting uninstalled, or is it getting overwritten and stamped with a new KB number?

What version of the SAM?

What patch are you you referring to?

It's possible that a newer patch has removed an entry from the WMI repository or registry.
