In the context of your first post, what that means is that if *some
other* service that:

a) is both in the old database ("old" meaning "the one that is about
to be replaced by s6-rc-update") and the new database, and
b) is up when you run s6-rc-update, and
c) has the new service *as a dependency* (in the new database, of course)

*then* that new service will be started, and the service that now
depends on it will be restarted. This as part of matching the
machine's state as closely as possible. It won't be brought up in
general just because it is new.
