I had never bothered myself much about it before, but the way i figured it out was that, those in red highlight installed packages with a higher version than the one on the CD set. (If you use YOU, this will happen). If you check carefully on the Versions Tab you mentioned, you'll see that the 'installed version' is always higher than the 'alternate version'

You can still update these packages if you wish. From where do you get your updates BTW?
