Updating of Keys

Kinda of a stupid question here about updating your keys. I'm curious as
to what changes would require you to re-upload it to a keyserver.   

I assume updating the passphrase would not because that is tied to the
private key but does it change anything in the public key where that
might be require it to be updated? 

How about changing the expiration date of the primary and secondary
keys? I assume that would be needed to be updated to the keyserver. 

Which then brings me to another question, what happens when you
re-upload your key to a keyserver. Does it overwrite the older one or ??
