Based upon your description, it sounds as if, by 'baseline', you are referring to a patch group filter within a scan template.
When scanning with a template such as the 'Security Patch Scan' template (in which there is not a patch filter or product filter), supersedence will dicatate that the most recent update in the supersedence chain is offered.
As in your example, once Oprah 12.02 (and, for the sake of argument, we will say that Oprah 12.02 supersedes Oprah 12.01) is added to the database by updating to the latest XML database, a scan of a machine which determines that the Oprah updates apply (i.e. Oprah 12.01 and Oprah 12.02), Oprah 12.02 will be 'offered' (i.e. will be indicated as a 'Patch Missing' item in the scan result).
If you use a patch group as a patch filter in your scan template, and wish to have Oprah 12.02 included in the detection, then you will need to add Oprah 12.02 to the existing patch group. Oprah 12.01 is not 'overwritten' by Oprah 12.02.
