There's a difference between Play Store updates, Play Services updates, and Play System updates. 

But I think that your talking about the Play System Update. The "Optimizing Apps" does not necessarily happen after every update, and sometimes it happens when there has been no update for any, just a simple Reboot. 

Also, unlike the Monthly Security Patch OTA, you don't see the "your phone has been updated" with Play System or Play Services updates.
