When I run tlmgr update -all, I see that, or at least I understand that the engine dvips is updated at some point. If yes, what is updated in dvips?

This topic is very specific, you could make it more generic by asking »How to find out what changed between updates of packages and/or engines?«. Or something similar. –  Johannes_B Mar 22 at 14:36
    
Agreed. It's a good question in concept, but as it stands it's too specific. –  Sean Allred Mar 22 at 18:22

Whenever a font package is installed or updated, the map files are updated as well; they are under dvips. See tug.org/svn/… for the list of updated files in this particular case. –  egreg Mar 22 at 18:24

The package dvips contains all font and PostScript specific stuff and not the program itself (which is in a package like dvips.<binary type>):
