[Mageia-dev] vbox/vboxadditions conflicts question

I understand that virtualbox and vbox additions cannot both be installed 
on the same system because of conflicts.  But why, when I try to update 
a system with virtualbox installed and vboxadditions not installed, do I 
get prompts about vboxadditions not being installable ?  What is asking 
for it ?

For example:

[root at ftgme2 release]# rpm -qa dkms-vboxadditions
[root at ftgme2 release]# rpm -qa dkms-virtualbox
[root at ftgme2 release]# urpmi --auto-select --keep
A requested package cannot be installed:
dkms-vboxadditions-4.0.4-6.mga1.x86_64 (in order to keep 
Continue installation anyway? (Y/n)
