Packstack does not perform a yum update/upgrade on the system.  If some packages are already installed prior to running packstack and they are able to satisfy package or puppet dependencies they would not necessarily get upgraded.

Unless you are experiencing problems caused by outdated packages, this is not necessarily a problem. In the event that something is failing due to a requirement being out-of-date, the solution is usually to file a bugzilla against that specific package so that it can be given a proper versioned requirement on the dependency.
