The effects of different updmap.cfg at different locations in your various texmf trees is cumulative and quite involved; it's no longer one updmap.cfg file containing everything and having precedence over all the other files with the same name. I'm still not sure, after several months of use, to have digested all the subtleties of this new operating mode. A detailed explanation is obtained by running "updmap --help".

Is it really so unclear? The basic idea is simply that all and only the
information/data from one tree is collected in the tree's updmap.cfg,
a clear separation of sources.
