According to Wanrong Qiu:

Yes, this is what htdig does by default if there is an existing database,
and the htdig program is called without the -i (initialize) option.
However, the rundig script that comes with the package calls htdig with
the initialize option, as its main purpose is to create all the initial
databases, so don't use the standard rundig script for update runs.
