Some recently installed packages appear like so:

[date] [time] install [package name]
[date] [time] installed [package name]

but some packages (e.g. man-db which I haven't manually installed) appear with only:

[date] [time] installed [package name]

What's the difference?

This observation is from the most recent dpkg log.

Distro: Linux Mint 17.2 Rafaela

dpkg version: 1.17.5
