Why does Apply Model Changes to Database propose extra changes?

I'm running "Apply Model Changes to Database", using a PDM Archive file to represent the database. On the Selection tab I restricted the changes to those tables with "Overall Modification Date" in September or October. When I ran the comparison, many other changes are selected (not just identified), that have nothing to do with the selected tables:

  • key and index changes
  • domains
  • FK constraint names
  • added/removed references and reference joins
  • removing tables
  • removing columns

The PD help is fairly quiet on exactly how the table selection works. Is there more comprehensive documentation on exactly what does or does not get included? I can tell that some of the References, for example, have been selected because the parent or child table was selected, but that's not true for all of them.

The DBMS is Oracle 11g.
