pkg upgrade and dependency

In `man pkg-upgrade`, I read that "pkg upgrade tries to upgrade 
dependencies of packages matched".

However, I have tried to upgrade a single package and only some of its 
direct run dependencies were upgraded; others were left untouched.

How does this work? How is pkg discriminating what to update and what not?

  bye & Thanks
