Like you said. The grub package might get updated, but the installed
bootloader (the core.img) remains the same. On UEFI, a new grub2-efi
package means the grubx64.efi in EFI/fedora is replaced.

I'm not quite following the question. Grubby always gets used in any
case. And the same Btrfs subvolume bug happens on either UEFI or BIOS.
