Updating Splunkbase apps in Distributed Environment

When upgrading apps/add-ons in a distributed environment, is there a recommended best practice or is it similar to deploying the app initially where I can just paste the newer downloaded version from Splunkbase over the existing app and then push the new bundle to the peers to fully update the app? And also is there any scenario where a rolling restart for this wouldn’t be required?

Thanks in advance

You have the right method for updating apps.
See $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/system/default/app.conf for which config files do not require a rolling restart. The settings are described in $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/system/README/app.conf.spec.
