Debian does not do that. They update ALL of chromium for every single update, 
even on the stable branch, because they don't have the manpower to backport 
security patches, and because backporting patches has severe limitations, 
especially for a full chromium browser as opposed to our subset of it. In fact 
no Linux distro does backports of security patches for Chromium, they have all 
given up.
