All system apps sgould be in system/app.They are a bit hard to be deleted.
Whereas user apps can be easily uninstalled via settings or so.
You need user apps to be in data/app.

then use link2sd to uninstall the system app - download it from market and then convert it to system app again with link2sd and restart if thats what you want to do

you can update system apps from market but they will not replace the system app - instead you have a duplicate app which means if you uninstall the update it will roll back to the version that orig system app was

if you want to overwrite the system app with the new version simply use link2sd to intergrate update into system then restart

yes in a sense

you will have the orig system app in system/app and then the new version stored in data

so if you uninstalled the new version it will roll back to the system app which you cannot uninstall by normal means (you can uninstall system apps with link2sd)

if you look through apps with link2sd anything with the word updated next to it in green means its a system app that has been updated by the user and so the update can be intergrated into system if you wish
