Any information on how game updates are handled with regards to storage?

So I was wondering if anyone has any information on how an update/patch to a game is being handled. If you buy a game physically, so for example you buy TLOZ:BOTW, and that game receives an update/patch of 1gb, will that 1gb be downloaded on the game cartridge itself? Or does it need to be stored on the internal memory or on the microSD card? Since the Switch version of BOTW will be 13.4gb there will probably still be space left over on the cartridge which could be utilised for updates.
