Why do linked patches of driver get approved automatically?

If you approve or decline a driver patch, all the associated patches inline i.e., in the list waiting for approval, will also get approved or declined. This is because those patches are the same .exe files. If one driver patch is approved, then the other linked patches of the driver with the same .exe file will also be approved.

For example, an "Intel HD Graphics 610" patch (Version 24.20.100.6170) has a linked dependency of the "Intel/Realtek High Definition Audio Driver" patch (Version 10.25.0.8) as both of them share the same patch download link. So, if any of the above two patches are installed, the linked patch will also be installed on the machine (if applicable).
