I have been looking at the desktop code myself in the last weeks to fix 
some extension related bugs.  And I can still not answer that question. 
  Just one idea: I think that extensions are one type of package that 
can be deployed.  If that is true then getDeployedExtensions should 
return a subset of getDeployedPackages.

I feel your pain.

Bundled is a temporary state of extensions.  It is used for extensions 
that are shipped with the office but are not pre-registered (those have 
the state prereg).  Once either one (bundled or prereg) is installed it 
is either shared (installed system wide and usable by every user) or 
user (installed only for one user).

All this without any warranty.  The code in desktop is much to complex 
for what it does.
