Whenever I merge a Switch game with the update file, it just adds the two together.

But it's supposed to replace the old content within the ROM with the updated files/content from inside the update. This should only make the ROM grow marginally, instead of bloating it up with the entire update. So what's the app doing wrong?

I'm not sure. I just know that they advise against it for that reason, possibly others. kinda curious if it would affect dlc at all if it were to scan app version. I don't know that though. a merged update just increases master version. some official games are that way, but it's almost never higher than 1.01 or 1.02. a much higher update might be a problem.
